Downtown Eastside
Ahasiw Maskegon-Iskwew

Photography by Ahasiw in and around areas of the Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside during the late 1980s and early 1990s. Ahasiw lived in this area for many years, the culture of the neighbourhood as well as landmarks such as the Hotel Balmoral becoming influential in his performance and media art practice. Photographs from these earlier series would appear later in his works.
