Photographing the World, One Torontonian at a Time

Colin Boyd Shafer


For the project Cosmopolis Toronto, Shafer has photographed a portrait of immigrants living in the city of Toronto, who hail from every country in the world. Shafer photographs each person in a space in the city where they feel most at home and pairs each portrait with the person’s story. This exhibition highlights the city’s diversity, but also what all Torontonians can learn from our global population.
