Zine launch event held at the Roncey Hotel/Art Studios (1521 Queen St W) presented by Blank Canvas Toronto. 50 editioned copies on A5 150GSM cardstock, sold out.

Artist statement: Across fields and mediums artists have always upheld a duty to define and articulate culture. Culture to me has always been about people, and by extension, about the faces that I see, which co-exist and fill a space and are the means by which a feeling attaches itself to an allotment of time. 'Portraits of Toronto' is my first attempt at a zine and it features 20+ portraits of people who have comprised my 'culture' for the past five months in the city core, alongside select original mini-essays.
