The Human Side of Toronto

We've seen a lot of the hard face of Toronto lately, following the G20 street riots.
Tina Picard, takes us into a more human side - the face of Toronto, after the police and the world leaders and the rioters have gone home.

Tina writes on her website:

I try to go further when I take pictures of strangers. I talk to them and make them talk to me about themselves. I take the picture while being a little bit of their life with a connection on a certain level. I chose strangers not for their outside beauty, but more for their outside glow, the emotions they express without even speaking.
