Toronto welcomed its first snowfall all the way back in November 2021. After taking some photos at the local park, we decided to head off to Evergreen Brickworks as the winter scenery is always gorgeous there. I’m always thankful that my love of photography brings me to these beautiful spaces.

Brickworks on October 31st, 2020.

Digital, 2020.

Our second visit to Brickworks this year, and on Halloween to boot! As you may remember, the 31st was also the last day before daylight savings ended. I really wanted to venture out and take advantage of that hour of sunlight we’d be losing. Under normal circumstances, we would be giving out chocolate to the kids, but this year we decided that it would be for the best if we skipped out.

Instead we decided to head out for some fresh air and beautiful nature. On a normal weekend, there would definitely be a lot more people out and about so bring a mask just in case. But on Halloween, I had a feeling that many people would be at home and that Brickworks would be more or less deserted. Last weekend, there were larger crowds out but as I had hoped, not so much on Halloween. We were able to head off on a longer trail and I was able to get some photos I was really happy with. This time, the whole family was out with no time constrictions so we were able to stay for a lot longer compared to the week before.

I really enjoy coming here and it’s so peaceful to be just surrounded by nature. The trees are definitely emptier now so this might have been our last autumn visit, sadly.

In Toronto, Evergreen Brickworks is the place to be during fall. No matter where you go, you’re surrounded by vivid, autumn leaves. If you decide to venture up higher, there are many trails you can lose yourself in. If not, there are places to explore down below. Either way, this is definitely a place where you do not want to rush your way through. If you let yourself absorb the views surrounding you, you won’t regret it!

Co-Existence

Fall 2014 Thesis

One could say that nature and humankind have a very distinct relationship. Between the two exists a delicate balance. Living in the city, this is sometimes easy to overlook as we tend to be surrounded by buildings and other human establishments. In our world, there are spaces that consist primarily of the human footprint and others that contain more of the natural environment. But there are also areas that contain both. It could be said that this is a symbiotic relationship as there is a close and long term relationship between two diverse “beings” that exist and work off each other. But these relationships are not always beneficial to both as one side may benefit more than the other. Therefore, I decided to document this push and pull relationship between humans and nature.

Taken in and around Toronto, these photographs aim to show aspects of human activity within nature and how they work together to create an environment. Bridges are built over rivers and lakes for transportation, houses are built within the trees, spaces are paved over for roads, and lumber is taken to be used as building material. All these instances are examples of this relationship that we often fail to notice. But once made aware, we are able to see to see this partnership that we share. We are able to see our co-existence with each other.
