I am photographing the street people who live in downtown Vancouver, Canada.
I come back a day or a week later and give them prints of the photographs I have taken. Watching their eyes light up as they recognize the people they know in their special community is amazing. They point to a photo and turn to me and say “Hey I know him” and then grin.
I spend hours walking the street greeting new people and showing them the prints and then asking permission to photograph them. Some say no, but many say yes. I always say, “If you find a photo of yourself please keep it”.
I ask them how long they have been on the street and the answers are a testament to the resilience of the human spirit.
As this series grows I am becoming keenly aware of their hands and the story they say in a gesture or with the deep lines etched into them from years of street living. For all this they are a happy when we talk and as I wave goodbye I promise to bring them a new print on my next short visit.
