Faces of Toronto

Toronto, Ontario: A city full of life, colour and excitement.  A city that is diverse not only in culture, but with it’s unique individuals as well.  My photo essay captures some of the different faces of Toronto, in one of the most eclectic neighbourhoods– Kensington Market. Some of the faces are of local shop owners, street musicians and even shoppers exploring the market.  I felt there was no person who was not interesting enough to be photographed because each person had their own unique story to share.

Welcome to Kensington-- Toronto's most unique neighbourhood, Kensington Market retains its charm and wonderful diversity through its eclectic mix of vintage clothing stores, grocers, restaurants and cafes.
