LIGHT AND THE SOCIAL ORDER
Vancouver Chinatown – Celebration or Commemoration?
Covan02 Art Gallery
Curated by Ewan McNeil
I have grown in a ection for the community of Chinatown and talked with many vulnerable people a ected by the transition. People have invited me into their homes, o ering food and gi s, even though it was apparent they had very little. I have given images to those I’ve photographed so they may have something physical to look at and to hold, and which commemorates their place in the history of Chinatown.
With deep appreciation, this selection of photographs bear witness to the rich and historic neighbourhood. My hope is to ensure, in some way, the soul, memories, stories and grace of the people of Chinatown remain alive.
