While I was in Rwanda I got the news that Ross Langdon was killed in the Nairobi shootings, along with his girlfriend Elif. I didn’t know Ross as well as a lot of people in Kampala did, but he was one of the first people I met here and would always take the time to meet me for a coffee or a beer when he was around.
I had the good fortune to visit Kyambura Lodge with him to take pictures, and even last Sunday, the same day as I heard the bad news, I had been telling somebody about that trip. It left a lasting impression on me to see a person so absorbed in the process of his work, so focused on the little details while at the same time being the mind behind such grand things. He was a great and good man, and I will miss him a lot.
Here he is talking about one of his many passions, sustainable architecture.
