Daredevil photographers. Thrill seekers. Troublemakers. Urban explorers. Documentarians. Historians.
To say Toronto is in the midst of a massive construction boom is an understatement. As the population of other cities across North America flee to the suburbs, Toronto chooses to build up it's downtown core. I once dubbed this the 'Manhattanization of Toronto', which seemed to be a phrase popular with the Reddit crowd. The growth in construction and the availability of existing and new-built buildings has created a perfect storm for photographers like me who are looking to document the change and evolution of our skyline.
I feel fortunate that I am able to see my city from a perspective that only a select few will ever see. It allows me to somehow justify what I am doing artistically by attaching some fictional importance to the project. The reality and purpose is very simple: share unique images from vantage points that most do not get to experience. My love for these unique perspectives has spawned a side project examining similar views in other cities, primarily in Southeast Asia.
This project has been featured in both the Daily Mail (UK), Spiegel (Germany), SpaceChannel (Canada), and 66 Minutes (France).
