Photo Essay: Not Your Ordinary Toronto

Night In Toronto
Night In Toronto

This photo essay is about Toronto, but the city looks a lot different in these photos than the city we know from our everyday life. These photos show us the streets of Toronto from another point of view and tell the stories found behind the scene. This is street photography.

“The pictures are there, and you just take them.”

Robert Capa about street photography

Street photography is not about reporting. It is not a series of images displaying different faces of a specific subject or an issue. Street photographers don't care about one issue in particular, what matters is the issue of "life" in general. Street photography is about seeing and reacting, and capturing the streets as they are - full of life, inspiring moments and emotions.

Let's see some Toronto street photography from Jonathan Castellino.
