WE BELIEVE IN CHANGING MISCONCEPTIONS OF VANCOUVER'S DOWNTOWN EAST SIDE

There are many misconceptions surrounding those living on the Downtown East Side

(DTES). Two Paycheques Away unlocks new perceptions of spirited and resilient

individuals from the DTES by sharing their stories as told during their visit to the

barber. This initiative lends a head start to those taking a next step and rebuilds bridges

and relationships among Vancourites of all walks of life.

 

Alysha Osborne

Founder, Professional Barber

Experienced in the industry for many years, Alysha is also a talented musician originally from Hamilton, Ontario. 

Her original inspiration came from her early years as a child when she would hear one of her idols share stories of living a hard life on the Down Town East Side in Vancouver.  With her step-mother's personal history, and her creativity she started 2 Paycheques Away.. as a passion project to help others.  Now, it has grown exponentially in a way that was never imagined possible.

Mihailo Subotic

Art Director, Professional Photographer

Mihailo is experienced in a wide range of styles including editorial, commercial, event-based, product and portrait.

Always looking for a new challenge, 2 Paycheques Away.. has been a fulfilling new project.  However it has become much more than that. By telling each unique walk of life's experience through photography, MIhailo and Alysha have been able to capture the transformations and tell the stories of each individual so that others can understand their struggles.

If your gonna do something, do it big.
