Freegans

 

In March and April I worked on a photographic story for Reuters in the Vancouver area on ‘Freegans’, or commonly known as dumpster divers. You could say this is a continuation on the subject of freeganism and under-consumption since I photographed a freegan in Ottawa, Ontario two years ago for Canadian Geographic. I also wrote up a blog on the Reuters Full Focus website on shooting the story itself.

This group of 'freegans’ all live together in a vegan household in East Vancouver. They are not poor but choose to scavenge their food from various dumpsters for their meals.
