Literary Nonfiction. Photography. Women's Studies. Winner of the City of Vancouver Book Award. HEROINES is an epic photographic documentary of the addicted women of Vancouver's Downtown Eastside. In 1997, fashion and portrait photographer Lincoln Clarkes turned his lens away from the world of glamour and began documenting the dire circumstances being endured by the marginalized women living and working on the streets of Vancouver's most troubled neighborhood. The HEROINES series consists of over 400 portraits of addicted women in Vancouver's notorious Downtown Eastside, and has garnered national and international media attention. Peace Arch Entertainment produced a one- hour documentary film, Heroines: A Photographic Obsession, earlier this year for BRAVO! and Women's Television Network. The documentary opened the Leipzig Documentary Film Festival and has been screened at several other festivals since its premiere in June, 2001.
