"I wanted to relate how we get our energy in a city like this," Christopher says of his photo, taken near Islington and Bloor. "Simple things can have complicated structures or designs. They’re so vital and we don’t really recognize them as an art form, but if you look at it from a different perspective, it’s there."
Christopher says he has always loved photography. He appreciates how it can pay tribute to parts of the city that aren’t around anymore. "I took a lot of photos of Honest Ed’s even before I knew they were going to tear it down. One day I’ll do something with them."
Christopher says when he was homeless, he gained an appreciation for the services that can help people in all kinds of circumstances. "It’s comforting in a way that just having money is not. Don’t be afraid to ask and seek out help."
