Portrait – Ben Lee, AIA

As past president of the AIA Architects League, I am responsible to host a gala dinner for Ben this weekend so he has been on my mind often this week. I want to make sure I do not let him down for his big day where we install him as our 2011 President. This portrait was captured at the AIA NJ East Coast Green Convention held in Atlantic City last September. I love how this image captures Ben’s humility, humor, integrity, and optimism all in one shot.
