Toronto-based photographer Patrick Cummins has worked as an archivist for the City of Toronto since 1986, specializing in photographic, cartographic, and architectural records. It’s a combination of skills that has fittingly led to a new book.
Written by Shawn Micallef (co-owner of Canadian urbanism magazine Spacing), Full Frontal T.O. features Cummins’s extensive photography collection, telling the story of Toronto’s dramatic transformation through its changing buildings.
Cummins’s photographic style is straightforward, giving readers an honest view of his built subjects without exaggerating any aspect of their progressions.
