Hope in Shadows: Stories and Photographs of Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside

For each of the past five years, Pivot Legal Society’s annual Hope in Shadows photography contest has empowered residents of Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside by providing them with 200 disposable cameras to document their lives―thus giving them an artistic means to enter the ongoing and often stormy dialogue over the place they call home. Hope in Shadows offers readers an intimate and honest look at what it really means to live in Canada’s poorest neighbourhood. The result is not at all bleak, but rather is full of grace, dignity, and plain simple truths that put a human face on the single most misunderstood community in Canada.
