Finding Bayside: Overcoming Fears and Gaining Trust

 

On the first day of a long-term project to document the conflict between Bayside’s residents and its homeless population, photographer Ben McCanna was chased out of Bayside by angry chants and a police officer’s blunt warning about personal safety.

As a result, McCanna first approached the project from a distance, moving surreptitiously, fearfully and working with long lenses. But a fortuitous conversation with veteran Boston Globe photographers (past and present) led him to approach the subject more closely with conversations and compassion.

Learn more about McCann’s approach and view his photographs at this talk, part of the Portland Press Herald’s Photos of the Year 2018 programming at the Portland Public Library.

This event is free and part of the Portland Press Herald’s 2018 Photos of the Year programming. The 2018 Photos of the Year Gallery Opening is January 4 and runs until February 23 at the Portland Public Library.

Photos of the Year is presented by Berlin City Auto Group.
