Toronto, 1980

Toronto, 1980, reflection

from the archives

This photo was taken just a few weeks after I arrived in Toronto. It shows the influence of my two favourite photographers–Robert Frank, and Lee Friedlander. In those days I was listening  to the album Exile on Main Street by the Rolling Stones. I wanted my photos to have the same bluesy grit as the music, and the same urban poetry as Robert Frank’s wonderful cover art.
