The 100 block of Vancouver’s West Hastings Street is the gateway to one of the most contested and controversial inner-city neighborhoods in North America—Vancouver’s infamous and impoverished downtown eastside.
Using the work of one of the art world’s most celebrated visual artists—Stan Douglas—the book unravels the dynamics of history and sociology, combined with photography and art, to create a compelling and visually arresting document that informs our understanding of what makes a neighborhood.
The book is based on a monumental-sized print of 100 West Hastings by Douglas, who photographed each building and composited the individual prints to assume a fantastic, impossible perspective. The print is reproduced in the book as a removable full-color poster.
