After the completion of the book A Room in the City (Anvil Press, 2010), which reveals a six-year journey into the hotel rooms of Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside, Gabor Gasztonyi has continued to photograph and work in the area for another six years, finding new images that reflect the often difficult and contradictory beauty of the people and the places they live. The artist looked for people who he had met and photographed for the original book, only to find many are no longer with us. The ones who are still here have aged and in some ways mellowed, realizing the importance of continuing their lives, often as couples in new relationships helping each other out. The exhibition features images from this project from 2006 to the present.
