Smoke Town, Toronto, 2017

Toronto is the largest financial center in Canada and the second largest in North America, after New York City. At the peak of commuting it was estimated 250,000 people came into and out of the financial district on a daily basis. By using documentary, still photography, my goal with this project was to experience as many aspects of the commuter life as possible and understand how it felt, to work and temporarily exist in the realm of tall office buildings.

In a Canadian context the existence of a concentrated financial district and the related influx of daily workers is unique. In particular the temporary nature of humanity inhabiting the workday office buildings, surrounding streets and courtyards. By documenting the nature of this unique phenomenon, my hope was to preserve a pictorial history, reflecting the current times.
