Artist Klaas Burger invited me to research the underlying causes why people end up on campings.
During four months we visited over seven campings and spoke to residents, owners, politicians on the municipal and state level, social workers, and migrant worker organisations.
We’re at a huge advantage living in a city like Vancouver, where there are so many opportunities to immerse ourselves in nature..it’s pretty cheap.
Campings - or vacation parks - were originally built for family holidays in the 1950s.
Camping owners allow permanent residency because they need the money, and local politicians tolerate it because they cannot provide affordable housing in urgent cases, like divorce or eviction.
