About My Earth
About My Earth is a collection of photographs taken in Toronto between 2015 – 2018. This series is a simple attempt at portraying emotional moments from transitory life within the city. These images, whether directly impacted by my life, the inhabitants of the city, and nature, provide me a connection to my surroundings that inevitably keep me searching for more.
