Early Sunday Morning

David Kaufman

Kaufman's recent architectural photographs depict the rapidly disappearing stock of heritage buildings in Torontos working-class downtown neighbourhoods. Early Sunday Morning uses an aesthetic inspired by Edward Hopper's 1930 painting of the same name. The exhibition features large-scale streetscapes of beautiful, century-old brick structures and industrial sites, whose existence is endangered by rampant urban redevelopment. This exhibition is a photographic cri de coeur for what remains of a past era of Toronto architecture
