Toronto is known as one of the most culturally diverse cities in the world. The walk is open to all levels, from beginners who want to learn the basics of street photography to advanced photographers who want an opportunity to perfect their skills in the crowded streets of downtown Chinatown.
No special equipment is required. Cell phone cameras are welcome. There will be an opportunity to take our group to Hong Cafe for those interested in food and portrait photography.
Meet outside Dragon City Mall, Spadina & Dundas, 280 Spadina Ave.
Hi, my name is Maylynn, and I am a Canadian photographer based in Toronto. I am originally from Trinidad & Tobago, but many people want to know if I'm from China or Japan. Little did I know that this initial collision of race, ethnicity, media, and the negative stereotypes they often come with would shape my photographic journey and take me to local schools and organizations on a mission.
As the director of Kids Canada, a nonprofit, I’m excited that I can use photography and technology to connect kids, not only locally but across borders internationally, to help build a more informed and compassionate world for our children. During the COVID lockdowns, I was very fortunate to work with ten amazing artists and educators in an art collective called Long Time No See to help drive traffic back into our Chinatowns using photos and stories, many captured on the streets.Website
