VOICE’S famous photographer CHANDRA BODALIA has passed away after a long, brave fight against throat cancer.

He was 68.

Chandra was a legend in his own lifetime.

He was by far the most well-known photojournalist in the community, indeed, more well-known than any other media personality with even former prime ministers Jean Chretien, Paul Martin and Stephen Harper knowing him personally.

His passion for photography was unsurpassed. He could be at a host of functions and events in just one evening and his photos would appear in every South Asian publication.

His passing away is a tremendous, indeed, irreplaceable loss for the community. There will never be another photojournalist like him.

He was warm and friendly with a unique sense of humour a really lovable person

He is survived by his loving wife Nirmilla Bodalia; parents Nagindas Bodalia and Chanchalben Bodalia; daughter Mona Bodalia-Dale and son-in-law Richard Dale; son Vimal Bodalia; grandchildren Thomas Arjai Dale and Isaiah Nathaniel Dale; as well as siblings Vinod Bodalia, Bhartiben Gandhi and Jayesh Bodalia.
