FACING THE EASTSIDE
 

What after all, is any photographic portrait but the trace element of a transaction made between two people of unequal power? Looked at this way, what shines through Mr. Grabowski's portraits isn't anything as simple and impossible as truth, but rather a kind of Hippocratic oath that, above all, the artist will do no harm. Captured against a gray backdrop is the promise sought by the more vulnerable people of the Downtown Eastside, as the rest of us decide what can and should be done to change the face of their community.

— David Beers, Globe and Mail
