December 11th, 2015 — It was near end of the day when a woman wheeled a large garbage bag full of bread from the Granville Island public market and dropped it into a dumpster across the road on Johnston Street. Within minutes three people, obviously too well dressed to be “dumpster divers” noticed the bread as they walked by. They sniffed it, squeezed it, decided it was perfectly good bread, brushed it off, and left with arms loaded. Another passerby commented as I was taking the pictures that people who shop on Granville Island “won’t buy day old bread” and Granville Island being where it is makes giving it away difficult.
August 27th — The Ocean Concrete silos on Granville island have been painted by Brazilian artists Os Gemeos as part of the Vancouver Biennale a non-profit charitable organization that promotes the creation and exhibition of great art in public spaces.
