Tatsuo Kage received his formal training in History. He is specialized in the German Weimar Republic and the declining process of its democracy. Prior coming to Canada, he met his wife in Japan, a Montrealer, with whom he had four children. The family moved to Vancouver in 1975, so he could pursue his research in Political Science and History. Once in Canada, Kage became an activist working on social justice and immigrant issues alongside the Redress movement for the incarceration of Japanese Canadians during and after World War II. Kage donated a total of 52 photographs.
