Editor’s Note: In just a few short days, the death of and “self-proclaimed unofficial Asian American photo laureate” Corky Lee has inspired numerous tributes to the man. This is just one of them.

WE dream of Corky  forever.

Your loving time brought us closer to your active mind

The MAN    Who cares and cherishes

Invites us to your openness

To  uncover many surprises

I  See you in your heartfelt  photos!
