Book Description 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 ofone 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.
