Winnipeg… she’s a virgin, she’s a whore.

Winnipeg, Canada

“She’s a virgin; she’s a whore. She’s a sinner; she’s a saint. Explore the most beautiful, most repulsive city in the world….” So reads the introductory header of the website Love & Hate Winnipeg by designer/photographer Bryan Scott.

For over 30 years I’ve had the pleasure of working in Winnipeg’s historic Exchange District (Circle spent the first 17 years on Albert Street, then moved to our current location in the Oddfellow Building on Princess Street 15 years ago)—the Exchange District looms large through Bryan’s remarkable lens.
