The Slop Factory

Enter the home of some of Guelph, Ontario's true-to-core hippies, punks and anarchists, known widely as The Slop Factory.  Its residents were part of the city's growing dumpster-diving culture. Filled top to bottom with paintings, junk-turned-art collections and antiques, creativity seeped through the house, replacing the customary with imagination. The house was alive in a way, a truly inspiring space.  Every nook held a treasure, every artifact a story. 

Since this series was photographed, the tenants were forced to vacate the space, leaving nothing behind but clean and customary white-washed walls.
