Inspired by lyrics from Simon & Garfunkel's "The Boxer", Nova Scotia-born Michael Anderson captured this image in an alleyway behind Ryerson University.
“I thought this was the perfect shot because when you see it, you know exactly what it means. You know that someone slept there, that they probably felt lonely or embarrassed. I can relate to that because I’ve struggled with depression and acute anxiety. But in Toronto there are lots of people who can help you get back on your feet,” Michael says.
Michael is currently completing the Transitional Year Programme at the University of Toronto.
