Community Project - "THIS IS EAST VAN"

(August 22, 2011 )

In 2010, founder Erin Sinclair began a community project, to celebrate East Vancouver's art, design, architecture, food, and diverse population, by publishing a book called "THIS IS EAST VAN".  The book is composed of photos submitted by the community.  Any image of East Vancouver, from anyone.  Real images, by real people, from this vibrant community. 

The "allure is contained in every story told by these images, stories of a progressive, open-minded, and diverse community with a pace and energy that can't be found anywhere else in the city." 

All proceeds from the sale of the book are donated to a not-for-profit program called Reel Youth.  The second book entitled "THIS IS EAST VAN 2" is currently underway, and accepting photo submissions.
