Almost a year ago, I was forwarded an email asking for photographers to submit photos of East Vancouver. With a little searching on the net, I found out that the photographs were for a compilation book called This Is East Van. It’s a book dedicated to showing the different characteristics of one of the most unique neighbourhoods in North America.
Without hesitation, I submitted a couple of photographs and hoped for the best.
A couple of months passed and I forgot about the whole project until another email was sent. It said that a photograph of mine would be used in the book.
Then out of the blue, fellow journalist Jeff Groat sent me a text message saying, “nice photo in the east van book.”
Looks like I’ll be running out to one of the independent book stores on Commercial Drive for a copy of This Is East Van.
