Simcoe and Queen Street

Discussion in 'Photojournalism, Candids and Street Photography' started by rbsinto, Apr 6, 2007.

  1. The corner of Simcoe and Queen Street in downtown Toronto was, for years home to an ever-changing group of Aboriginal street men and women. For a couple of years, I would visit, chat, and with permission photograph them. The group has since dispersed, as the corner was fenced off for the construction of a large high-rise residential and commercial project.
    This photo was taken one cold, rainy fall day when most of the group had gone off to seek shelter. The message I tried to convey with this image is that things aren't always what they seem. What at first appears to be piles of abandoned rags or clothing, is in fact, upon closer inspection, two people.

  2. It's such a sad thing to see.
