  • Book Review - Vancouver Light: Visions of a City - Spacing Vancouver
    visual moments in and around the city A well seasoned science and nature photographer Nunuk has three decades of experience capturing an amazing diversity of locations around the globe His work has been used in a number of magazines including Time Canadian Geographic and Reader s Digest And while his best selling book Natural Light Visions of British Columbia did include a smattering of images in and around Vancouver Vancouver Light is his first compilation focusing on the city itself Describing this endeavour as a love letter to the city I live in Nunuk s collection does not shy away from subjects that have been covered many times in the past such as the Lion s Gate Bridge the Brockton Point totem poles and the view from Grouse Mountain but mixes them with some truly magical instants As such it is clear that Nunuk put his hometown knowledge of light and subject to good use in orchestrating the photographs One is not surprised to hear for example how he waited over a month to capture an image of a person walking on the Iona Jetty against the setting sun at just the right time of year The photographs range from beautiful two page panoramic spreads that span the length of this 11 x14 book to more modest 4 6 shots Large photographs dominate the content however allowing readers to better appreciate the details of the images captured Needless to say Vancouver Lights will not disappoint those looking for a book that will make visitors envious That locals will find the content equally engaging is a testament to the local boy capturing his hometown with sincerity and love Erick Villagomez is one of the founding editors at Spacing Vancouver He is also an educator independent researcher and designer with personal and

  • Megaphone Newspaper: Navigating through the Urban Form - Spacing Vancouver
    accomplish with the app to help people understand not only where Megaphone vendors are located but what they are doing Media has dramatically changed with the evolution of social media and online apps that can provide up to date news instantly from a touch of a finger This growing trend has changed the way consumers access information and local news Street papers like Megaphone have an old school model this is how newspapers were sold from the start states Condon Megaphone needs to maintain this model because the social interaction within the urban landscape between people of different classes is an important as the transaction itself Using technology to encourage face to face interactions with the Megaphone vendors is an important feature that illustrates how the urban landscape can provide a forum for communities of varying social classes to connect and share information with one another The impact that Megaphone has on the urban form of Vancouver both physical and social made me think of a quote from Jane Jacobs in her book The Death and Life of Great American Cities 1961 Cities have the capability of providing something for everybody only because and only when they are created by everybody While the business model of Megaphone may be outdated when compared to the new digital age of media the paper occupies something greater than the shifting borders of technological development Not only do Megaphone vendors recreate the personality and character that media used to possess but also they connect different social classes through non traditional perspective and developing a more bodily side of an impersonal app world Megaphone vendors connect a community through words Words that bring society together Words that bring hope to our communities Words that dissolve the apparent stigma of homelessness and mental and physical illness

  • Cartographically Speaking: Eric Fischer's Geotagged Vancouver - Labelled - Spacing Vancouver
    And as someone inherently interested in gleaning what our identity is here in the Vancouver area I decided to add an important piece of information missing from Fischer s maps place labels I m sure Fischer himself would agree that in order to truly appreciate the gift he has given us and make it most meaningful labels of the local places highlighted by the information compiled are necessary Without them one can only take away broad general information and one cannot expect Fischer to be able to find out that localized knowledge for all the maps he created It is task for locals With respect to our map above an amazing diversity of places are evident Some are expected including well known tourist areas such as Robson Street Gastown Queen Elizabeth Park Van Dusen Gardens Grouse Mountain and the Stanley Park Totem Poles But I think the more interesting ones that arguable speak to significant places of local identity are off the beaten path and luckily Fischer had provided us with a map that differentiates between locals and tourists both of which should be used in tandem here Some telling local hotspots include Mountain View Cemetery its popularity likely related to the creation of its well received Celebration Hall Everett Crowley Park the former Kerr Road Dump turned tranquil natural sanctuary with amazing view over Richmond and the Fraser River Renfrew Library connecting to Renfrew Ravine Park to the south the wonderful Cates Park at the south eastern tip of the north shore and the John Hendry Park home to Vancouver s only inland urban beach and natural lake Within a more urban context Commercial Drive is recognizably the most popular single street for locals outside of the downtown core It s deeply saturated line from south of Broadway to Venables is explicitly evident to the east of the False Creek Flats void and speaks to the magic that is happening Within the downtown peninsula deciphering between locals and tourist is much more difficult Cross referencing the black and white and coloured maps shows the West End s Nelson Park and George Wainburn Park located along False Creek just east of the Granville Street Bridge as being popular local hubs to name a couple For those who are curious the darkest area within the downtown core is a series of blocks bounded by Granville Georgia Robson and Burrard I had to leave number of very tiny blips scattered across the map unlabelled to keep it uncluttered but they are worth mentioning since they highlight some very small local attractions For example a short two block area between Fraser and Clark on 10th Avenue is known for it s cherry blossoms and sparks a short stint of photos by cyclists and passers by when they are in bloom Sites like this and others similar to it represent the hyperlocal hotspots Now if as Fischer states the places highlighted in these maps are core to our identity perhaps dual identity is more
