Stories of GP's Diversity
It seems like GP welcomes new residents on a daily basis and one of the things that I've heard from people new to the city is that it doesn't seem like there's very much cultural diversity here. Now, it's a fact that immigrants tend to settle almost exclusively in Canada's largest cities like,Toronto, Montreal & Vancouver. Having said that, GP has always had some very strong cultural communities within the city and with our growth of late these communities are expanding and diversifying even more.
Olivia Kachman is the staff photographer with the Daily Herald Tribune. New to the city herself, she's been doing some amazing work that extends beyond the newsprint. If you look here she's put together some excellent, I'll call them: photoessays. They all feature some facet of GP life but it looks like she's been paying special attention to our cultural communities, which is great news.
Do yourself a favour and check them out. They're short, they load quickly and all include sound. I'd have to say that this is my favourite thing to come out of the new GP Ink paper.
