In 1984, artist J. Seward Johnson, Junior gifted “Photo Session” to the park. It features 3 life-sized people posing for a photo, with the city as a backdrop, with another bronze statue posing at the photographer. The statues themselves are in many visitor photos, and are listed in numerous TripAdvisor posts about the park. In 2008, the statue of the photographer was stolen, and many feared it would be melted down for money. It was later found in a field in Aldergrove.
Although a commemoration of photographers at that lookout point today might feature smartphones and selfie sticks, Photo Session continues to draw its own attention, which is why it is today’s Vancouver Icons photo feature: Vancouver B.C.
