"The best way to get to know a city intimately is to walk it. Better still , carry a camera and you can unearth it’s soul. I’ve called Toronto "home" for many years now and continue to experience it and it’s occupants with a renewed appreciation through the eyepiece of a lens. It’s as diverse as it is expansive . It’s changed so much since I moved here from Montreal in the 80′s, and continues to do so at an alarming pace that’s both good and bad. Gentrification is a pendulum that swings both ways. I shoot almost exclusively with prime lenses these days , I like the discipline they impose and the quality of the images they produce. A 28mm is my go-to most of the time , but occasionally I take the 50mm out for a spin so it doesn’t feel neglected. The topographical urban landscape of this city is was draws me in , and I’m happy to have it as a muse."
