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.

In my 'Photojournalism' collection.

Many thanks to Deborah Downs for the spotlight!

In the Street Youth...Their Story! photo essay.
