Transient Topography

Paul Casselman

There is great beauty in high-rise construction—from the thrilling sense of space, to amazing light, iconic tower cranes, and robust workers. This exhibition emphasizes the aesthetics of construction as work progresses from excavation through to completion of the commercial tower at One York Street and residential towers of Harbour Plaza. The photographs include landscapes of the ever-changing topography, up-close photojournalism describing the work, and revealing black-and-white portraits of the workers.
