Radiant City is a third series of images focused on Toronto’s tower apartment neighborhoods. These large format prints evoke the designed and lived intensities of these conflicted sites: essential housing for one quarter of the city’s population, arrival destinations for immigrants, the decaying location of much of Toronto’s urban poverty, products of modern ideologies gone awry, and locations of past glory, current dynamism, and future potential. The images invite the viewer to consider the evolving presence and status of these buildings in our collective consciousness. These images extend earlier representations of these sites found in Figure Ground, West Lodge, and Landmarks and Monuments.
The Radiant City catalog includes details of each print.
