Toronto, Shades of Black

  Photographer :   George Fischer    
  Publisher:  George Fischer

For many years, George Fischer has called Toronto home. During that time, he has used colour photography to record the culture, history and glamour of this amazing metropolis.

In a departure from his colourful reporting, this monochromatic take on Toronto uses the luminant black-and-white medium to craft highly personal interpretations of the city’s personality. Fascinating photographic statements draw attention to hidden elements throbbing beneath countless concrete, glass and wood surfaces. Intriguing interplays of white, black and gray impart an edgy aesthetic that accentuates Toronto’s timelessness, intricacy and romance. Through his lens, you’ll peer into the mysteries behind inky silhouettes, watery depths and textured skies.

Deep in the heart of Fischer’s Toronto, wood nestles in stone, brick dances with glass, rubber smudges on asphalt. Shadows and light blur the lines between night and day, blend the shifting seasons and recast the life of the city. And give you a chance to see the city in a new light.
