Empty City

  • Photographer
    Daniel Skwarna

Empty City is a large format personal project I used to process the immediate and long term changes Covid19 and the global pandemic wrought on our homes and communities. I wandered the streets and natural areas of Toronto for months with a Toyo 45a field camera making socially distanced portraits that are both urban and architectural.
