Borderlands - A split screen view of Vancouver's west side

This was photographed last summer for Charlotte Gill’s “Borderlands” piece which appeared in VR #28. The challenge was to find interest in the normally rather sleepy, uneventful neighbourhood of Dunbar on Vancouver’s west side. Actually, there are many interesting things to photograph in Dunbar once you include Camosun bog and its ongoing restoration. The image from one of the local consignment stores dropped into the scene perfectly. It’s like a street scape ruptured by resurgent natural forces and tied together by an image of genteel façade.
