This photograph was taken at the Canadian Pacific Railway Yard (borderline Agincourt/Malvern) featuring good friend and talented musician jJ. At the time jJ released a single titled “Goals,” which by definition is the object of a person’s ambition or effort; an aim or desired result. The idea was to illustrate this meaning with the goals and objective of the CPR continuously improving quality of transportation services nationwide. All while displaying the structural aesthetic of this Scarborough location.

Last new year’s eve during a snowstorm, the lights of this bakery really stood out making a cool effect with the snowfall. It’s a well known bakery within the Markham road and Lawrence Avenue east area. This picture was taken on a 35mm camera using black and white film. Edmond is a 24-year-old photographer based in Toronto, Canada. Given a point and shoot camera as a gift in 2015, he has since been learning different techniques and areas of photography. Taking pictures on almost a daily basis and experimenting with both digital and film, Edmond tries to capture unique perspectives of his surroundings and environment.

Things Category- Grand Prize Winner

If you’re a Scarborough native, you’ve probably heard about debates around which station has the best patties, Warden, Bathurst, or Islington. In Scarborough, Warden station is known for it’s patties, so I wanted to create a photo that symbolized that, so I took it at the station.

My name is Alicia Reid and I am a Jamaican-Canadian photographer based in Toronto. My work is inspired by Caribbean and Toronto culture as I love sharing moments that highlight people of colour. I’ve been doing photography for 5 years now, and I’ve captured local events and international artists from Burna Boy, Jorja Smith, and Wizkid. I started to pursue photography for the purpose of highlighting Toronto, the people, it’s culture, environment, and many more. I wanted to make sure that there was a positive outlook being shown in the city especially towards people in marginalized communities.
