Estonia represented in Cosmopolis Toronto art project (6)
Eestlased Kanadas 19 Jan 2014  EWR

Colin Boyd Shafer set out to photograph Torontonians born in every single country of the world. Cosmopolis in fact means ”a city inhabited by people from many different countries.”

While traveling, he was often told he looked “Canadian.” This never really made sense to him, given the fact that Canadians are extremely diverse.

Shafer took a portrait of his subjects in a place where they feel comfortable and ‘at home’ within the GTA. He then took another photograph featuring the person with an item that they feel connects them to their place of birth. These two photographs were paired with a short story and published on a website. Estonia is represented by Toronto Estonian Killi Mirka. Killi's photographs and story can be seen here: Killi Mirka


The exhibition featuring Shafers project opened on Jan 15, 2014 at the Toronto Centre for the Arts. More information and for the hours: http://cosmopolistoronto.com/e...
