Iskodaywatomi: Fire People

Allen Agostino

Residents of First Nations are ten times more likely than those living in the rest of Canada to die in a house fire. Documentary photographs by Agostino shine a light on what it’s like to be an Indigenous firefighter in communities where fire services are woefully underfunded. This exhibition is organized by the Ali Mustafa Memorial Collective, which came together to honour the life and work of the Toronto-based photojournalist, who was killed on assignment in Syria in 2014.
