People in our community who live below the poverty line want us to see life through their lens in the MYTORONTO photo exhibition opening October 11 at Artscape Youngplace (180 Shaw Street).
111 single use Fujifilm cameras were offered to Torontonians living on our streets this past May. Ninety-three of them were returned and from that lot, 2600 photos were printed. Now 40 of those images were selected by a jury to be on display in the MYTORONTO exhibition. The general public were invited to vote for the “People’s Choice Award.” Twelve of the images will be used to create a calendar for 2019 that will be sold to raise funds and awareness for the Toronto homeless community.
