Christopher Penrose – Toronto, Canada
Scarborough is a grid of streets: Morningside, Finch, Brimley, Sheppard, Victoria Park and Lawrence, to name a few. Yet how well do residents know the thoroughfares that so much of their lives take place on and around?
Portrait of a Street is a photography installation that will portray some of the roadways that define Scarborough through portraits of the beginning and ending, ending and beginning of these roadways.
This installation will explore vital streets that criss-cross Scarborough, from the bluffs to the south to the northern city limits, and cutting right through the area’s eastern and western borders.
Portrait of a Street is curated by Giles Monette.
