"Donovan Patrick Mahoney is many things: a Kwaguilth First Nations child given up for adoption after both parents died from addiction, an ex-homeless drug user, a survivor of a 21 day overdose coma, and a stand up comedian. Now a photographer and documentarian, he is driven to share with Canadians his tale of survival on the streets of Vancouver's Downtown Eastside." (market wired)

All time favorite artist and why? My favourite artist? That's always changing. Rodney Mullin pro skateboarding. His art is his skateboard, and watching him do flatland is mental. It's self expression, he’s uncatchable.
The best trip you’ve ever been on? Last year when I rode down to San Francisico on my motorcycle, down the Oregon coast. I Dreamt about it my whole fucking life and it was better then I ever could have imagined. I Went alone and it was the fucking best, so peaceful. Not talking to anyone that whole time only the gas station attendants.
Favourite Instagram page you follow? @humansofnewyork This page is greatly influential. I like the way he writes but I want to do something different.
Tell us something that’s on your bucket list. Oh shit, Detroit. I want to ride out to Detroit this year and take photos.
If you could trade lives with someone else for one day, who would it be? Jesse James he’s got so many toys! Could you imagine having access to that guys garage? He’s got monster trucks... and guns!
Do you ride with any women? Not Really... I suppose the closest I've got to riding with a women is Tori [Drew]... But it was more like we were going in the same direction. Mostly, I ride alone... which isn't a male/female thing, just not a lot of my friends like to go fast. The only person I have thoroughly enjoy riding motorcycles with is Morgan [Black].
