Italian-Canadian Poet Diego Bastianutti and photographer Jon Guido Bertelli explore life in the Downtown Eastside through word and image. These artists reveal that the world of the city core is one of contrast and contradiction contained within the span of a few streets. Contiguous to the design houses of Gucci, Chanel and Versace: spaces of high affluence, economic abundance and cutting edge aesthetic fashion, are the dwelling places of the city’s most impoverished. The artists reveal that there is very little that sets these two worlds apart.
