In 1935, street photographer Foncie Pulice set up his camera on a Vancouver city sidewalk and for the next 45 years made a living capturing the river of people flowing through Vancouver’s downtown. He snapped hundreds, thousands, and eventually millions of pictures capturing a movement, a moment in time and a story in the lives of British Columbians. He made the ordinary extraordinary. Every passerby was a star.
The film, Foncie’s Photos, traces a timeline through the heart of Vancouver as Foncie unwittingly captured changes in clothing, buildings, attitudes, love and life in the growing city.
This is about all of us … and the simple art of the everyday.
