Tiffany, 22, is a street worker in Vancouver's Downtown Eastside (DTES). She has been there on and off for 7 years since she was 15. The DTES is known for its high rates of poverty, drug use, sex trade, crime, as well as a history of community activism.
My goal was to experience the DTES with different people around the community. Talk to them, get to know the area, and to really become friends and gather stories of the reason they became part of this community.
Video of my son Jasper photowalking on 42nd street. He carried with him Nikon D200 with a 18-70mm lens – a hefty gear! The camera was set to black and white. With practiced arm strength, all he needed was a little encouragement. He did well, I think. Despite a discouraging gesture from one Marine, which he captured and became his money shot, he moved on!
