This is East Van Community Project

Last week I attended the book launch of the “This Is East Van” community project at the Waldorf Hotel. I was really looking forward to getting my hands on a copy of this because it looked so wonderful from what I’d seen online. Also, there are a large number of people I know who have work in the book, and that’s just awesome.

The project was put together by Erin Sinclair and Jason Uglanica, two East Van locals who love their neighbourhood and wanted to organize a community project. They did a really fantastic job of selecting work to include and curating the flow of one photo to the next. The book beautifully captures what life it like in Vancouver’s eclectic east side.
