The series below was shot between 2013 and 2015 in the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver. It was born out of my curiosity of the area. I couldn't believe it existed and wanted to photograph it so I could take it home and examine it. Often when you're walking by you just put your head down and get through it as fast as possible. I wanted to understand what was happening. I think the biggest thing I took from the project was they are generally lost people that have found a community of people in a similar situation.
