I’m thinking today about an Ottawa woman who died last weekend after a 20-year struggle with drugs. My heart goes out to her family, who never gave up hope until last weekend. I wish them peace.
Lens – the New York Times photojournalism blog – showcased Ottawa photographer Tony Fouhse’s crack user series on Wednesday. These photographs were all taken on a street corner in Ottawa’s Byward Market.
The images are haunting. I’ve looked at them many times over the past year or so. In some of them, all I can see is the addiction. But in others, I can see right through the addiction to the human being beneath it.
The blog comments are interesting too – in both positive and negative ways. Definitely worth a read.
