Each week, we venture out on a photowalk in a neighbourhood, which many people around the world consider to be a ghetto, slum or skid-row. A place to avoid. A place to be scared of. The neighbourhood is full of heartache, addictions and atrocities. But it is also full of beauty, hope and community. In the DTES, you’ll see selfless acts of camaraderie and love that will move you.
We just wrapped up our third year of PHOTO 101 and the work that these students produce is remarkable. Each week we shoot a few rolls of 120 film with HOLGAS and celebrate the results the following week.
Kevin and I just selected the images that will make up part of our art show on the Eastside Culture Crawl on November 18-20th. Be sure to mark your calendar. You don’t want to miss this.
