People of Toronto – street photography in the most diverse city in the world (part 1)

Home to 230 different nationalities, Toronto is the most diverse city in the world. You can experience different cultures right here, without travelling to far away places. ChinatownGreektown, Little Italy, Koreatown, Little India, Little Portugal – are all lovely neighborhoods with their own lifestyle, cuisine, traditions and festivals – perfect places for street photography. People of Toronto is a two part series of photos taken over a period of eight years using Sigma DP series cameras.

“The fact that over 50 per cent of the residents of Toronto are not from Canada, that is always a good thing, creatively, and for food especially. That is easily a city’s biggest strength, and it is Toronto’s unique strength.” – Anthony Bourdain
