Simcoe and Queen Street

The corner of Simcoe and Queen Street in downtown Toronto was, for a number of
years, home to an ever-changing group of homeless Aboriginal men and women. For
a couple of years I would visit, chat, and with permission photograph them. The
group has since been dispersed when the corner was fenced off for construction
of a large commercial and residential high-rise complex. This photo was taken
one cold, and rainy fall day when most of the group had gone off to seek
shelter. The message I tried to convey with this image is, that what at first
appears to be two piles of abandoned clothes and rags, is in fact upon closer
inspection, two people.
