Ruins of Toronto

Adam Taylor


Adam Taylor has spent the past year photographing abandoned ruins in and around Toronto. These ruins are the visible results of a changing city, like small pieces of history in suspension. Ruin is a transitory stage and the result of society’s changes and the migration of industry. This fragility of these sites and the elapsed but rapidly moving time, draws Taylor to photograph them one last time, leading the viewer to wonder about the permanence of things.
