Megaphone Magazine: Facing The Truth

Last month, I had the pleasure of working with Megaphone Magazine on the cover story for this month’s November issue.

The story is a reflection of Canada’s inaugural National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, told through the lens of those who witnessed, here in Vancouver.

On this important milestone day, I handed out disposable cameras to strangers outside šxʷƛ̓ənəq Xwtl'e7énḵ Square, formerly the Vancouver Art Gallery North Plaza, so we could witness the event through multiple lenses. My piece for Megaphone reflects on some of the frames we made, and on the conversation I had with Suzanne Kilroy/Huculak, a Nlaka'pamux vendor of Thompson-Okanagan descent, who received one of my cameras.

It’s an interesting piece, with credit due to the kind folks who accepted my on-the-spot creative request, and to my editor Paula Carlson, who was so helpful and trusting of my wacky ideas!
