In 1992, I was asked by the United Church of Canada to produce a photo essay about street youth for display at a major conference it was hosting. I spent 3 weeks working on the project, mainly at night and the early hours of the morning.
At about 2 am one day I found this young girl wandering aimlessly, looking dressed for school and clutching a sleeping bag. It was so obvious that she did not belong and was very frightened. I quickly found a police cruiser to investigate and she was delivered back to her home that morning.

Many thanks to Max Schenk for the spotlight!
