From this point of view you can see how many more tall buildings we have – evidence that Toronto has more towers going up than any other city in North America. In the foreground, notice how large the Canadian National Exhibition grounds are and particularly how massive the Direct Energy conference centre is. It is the biggest squat square building in between the expressway and the lakeshore boulevard. And to the far right is the permanently sleepy Ontario Place. And finally I love how you can see the 32-year-deceased Hearn power plant on the other side of town in the barren port lands (reddish building with huge smokestack near water).
I will be exhibiting three photos of high-rises along side other talented photographers at the opening gala for the Toronto Urban Photography Festival at Gallery 918 (918 Bathurst) this Friday June 27th from 6-11pm. Come by if you can! Check out www.tupf.ca for workshops, photo walks and phototalks from June 27 – July 12.
