Photo: Leonard Cohen And Paul Berger – 1980s

The official Canada Library and Archives catalog title of this photo is “Leonard Cohen et Berger (?).” The institutional indecisiveness notwithstanding, the big guy with his arm around Leonard appears to be Paul Berger, who was President of Sony Music Canada and “worked very closely with Canadian Leonard Cohen with whom he began working in Europe in the late ’80′s.”1
