Each year, winning photographs from the Hope in Shadows photography contest are featured in a calendar that local residents can sell on the street through a vendor program. Hope in Shadows demonstrates that meaningful opportunities for storytelling and employment positively contribute to the well-being and dignity of people impacted by poverty. Check out the video below for more information about the project and to hear from some of the photographers and vendors.
Hope in Shadows is a project based around a photography contest for low-income residents of Vancouver's Downtown Eastside community.
