East Vancouver portrait

Judy Hanazawa poses for my portrait series on BC voting rights history.

When Judy was born British Columbia she didn’t have the right to vote because she was Japanese-Canadian.  Japanese-Canadians and Indigenous people couldn’t vote in BC until 1949.  Mennonites and Hutterites until 1948.  Chinese-Canadians and South Asian-Canadians until 1947.  Please don’t take your right to vote for granted.  Get to the BC polls on Saturday October 24, 2020.
