The Photographer Speaks:
Majority of residents of Thorncliffe Park Drive, are Muslim, Pakistani and new immigrants. In a community of 30,000 and more, this location has highest amount of Pakistani immigrants in Toronto. This Photo Diary will be a series capturing the everyday hum drum of Thorncliffe Park Drive. From 'slice of life' to inspiration at doorstep, I am hoping to show my frames, in all honesty with no filters and no bars. Just as life as it is, in Thorncliffe Park Drive.
