Still Here

The subject in this photo is a resident of Oasis which is a social housing complex in Vancouver Downtown Eastside, located at 40 East Hastings. Most residents at Oasis are ex-convicts, addicts, sex workers or persons living an at-risk life in general. What I meant to portray by taking this photo was the fact that through it all, this gentleman still lives his life and takes it one day at a time no matter what happens. Currently Vancouver is suffering from major budget cuts taken from developing affordable housing for immigrants and the at-risk population.
