Everyone’s a Photographer: Toronto punk and hardcore photography


Between 2004 and 2009, I extensively documented the punk and hardcore music scene in southern Ontario, photographing an average of one show per week. Bands such as Fucked Up, No Warning, Trapped Under Ice, Career Suicide, Cursed, Cancer Bats and Risky Business were frequent subjects — some of these shows were held in my second-floor apartment in Little Italy. In December 2013, I put together a solo exhibition of that work at the Black Cat Artspace in Toronto, and produced a companion full-colour zine of the same name in an edition of 50. Below is a selection of those photographs.
