In this post, I decided to open my archive and publish some of the pictures I have taken throughout my journey into the Vancouver startup scene. The quality of my shots is…what it is. I am not a photographer and I do not even pretend to. I simply use my smartphone camera to capture moments and details that I find interesting and curious. The shots go from my first hackathon in 2014 to my latest exploration of coworking spaces in pandemic times.
