Tony Edwards


Anthony R. Edwards

Tony was born in London, England, in 1942. He spent many formative years in Africa and was drawn to return in 1962 after completing his college education.

Tony's professional life included photography, television, advertising and anthropological research. It turned out Tony was born a bit of a nomad, following, as he did, his career to Britain, Rhodesia, Zambia, South Africa, the United States and Canada. Fortunately for him or perhaps because it was meant to be, Tony’s wife, Imelda, whom he met in South Africa, enjoyed the same wandering spirit.

In 2004, Tony and Imelda settled on Salt Spring Island in British Columbia, Canada.
