“My brother has been a subject of mine since he was born 25 years ago. But when I actively started taking photos of his recovery and addiction, it was because he asked me to,” writes photographer Vancouver photographer Jackie Dives at Vice. Dives has documented years of her brother’s drug use and recovery. The article appears amid a fentanyl overdose crisis in Vancouver. Dives is crowdfunding what she calls “The Brother Project” to show the difficulty of recovery, and to “provide a way to communicate” with her brother.
