Photographer Raymond Parker has been shooting in BC for decades. In the 1980s he ran a commercial studio in the city and he sensed that “With Expo 86 looming, great changes were in store. Indeed, they had already begun.”.
He picked up his camera and hit the streets, capturing an incredible series thats shows an entirely different city than the one we know now. A giant wave of change came when the world’s fair hit, and our city has never been the same. It’s so great to be able to take a peek back at what used to be here.
The series has come to contain some of Raymond’s best selling work, and he’s shared 25 of them with us for you to enjoy here.
Have a look at more of them HERE, where he sells prints.
