Toronto Photo Essay: Patterns

Writing and photography by Patrick Dell.

Diversity sums up Toronto for me. This applies to every aspect of the city, including its aesthetics.

Abstract shapes and textures have always caught my eye as photographic subjects and this essay seeks to capture some of the city's myriad visuals.

I'd like each Toronto pattern to remind you of a different place in the city; a place that may be far removed from the actual location where the shot was taken. A place you may know, or know of. Or a place you may need to find.

Also available as a fullscreen slideshow.
