A non fiction book by

The Heroines Series 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 of the marginalized women living and working on the streets of Vancouver's most troubled neighbourhood.

The Heroines Series consists of over 400 portraits taken over the last 5 years, portraits which have generated controversy and national and international media attention. One hundred of those photographs are featured here alongside commentary by author Barbara Hodgson, social advocate Elaine Allan, 20th Century photo collector Patricia Canning and art curator Ken Dietrich-Campbell.
