About the Book
A photo book about Granville Island in Vancouver, Canada. Granville Island was redeveloped in the 1970s, transforming it from a dilapidated industrial wasteland into what is today one of the city's best loved areas by locals and tourists alike. Visually it is characterized by strong colours and the unique textures of concrete and corrugated walls from its industrial past, as well as by its maritime surroundings, and the spectacular vistas of the high rises of downtown Vancouver.
Beeke Bailey is a native of Kiel, Germany living near Vancouver, Canada. She studied art in her home town and worked as an illustrator in Germany. In the 1970s she immigrated to Canada. Over the last few years she has been rediscovering her love for photography.
