Photographer's Note

Vancouver is generally considered to be one of the finest cities of the world, offering a high quality of life to its citizens.
However, like in so many big cities, there is also a darker side. Just a few blocks away from the tourist area of Gastown lies another world of the poor, the homeless, of dealers and drug addicts.
The man on this photo is searching in a waste container and I was struck by the contrast between his struggle for a decent life and the sheer beauty of this graffiti sprayed alley.
