13 community leaders are teaming up with 13 photographers over two weeks in The Love Umbrella Project headed up by Kelly Deck. It’s an art-based media campaign and photo exhibition sponsored by The Vancouver Foundation, with all proceeds going to Leave Out Violence (LOVE), a Vancouver community organization devoted to youth anti-violence programs.
Each team was given the task of collaborating on an image or a series of images sharing the story of how love illuminates their communities.

“As a neighbourhood café, we don’t get to choose our neighbours. We are brought together, not by cause, culture or politics – but by a love of where we live.”
