Amor Vincit Omnia, or not. Words & pictures from the DTES.
It’s a place that can be difficult to love and a place that some people love to hate and you may have to look hard and sometimes twice at things you’d rather not look at, but the evidence is everywhere. Despite gentrification, despite the fentanyl crisis, day in, day out, kindness and generosity continue to prevail on the streets of the Downtown Eastside. Some days it doesn’t seem to be enough and some days it feels like the only place in Vancouver where you can find love winning the battle against indifference and intolerance.
