Heart City

Ottawa, my hometown, is the capital of Canada. It is a government city entrenched in the 9-5 mentality. The consensus is that little to no life exists here. That creativity is discouraged. That we lack personality. 

Obviously, there are pockets of us that believe that is not the case.

The boundaries of Ottawa take the shape of the heart, thus the title of the project. On my walk in to work every day, it's my goal to capture four shots that reflect the life and passion that exist in this city. I'm hoping to uncover people and faces I wouldn't otherwise think twice about, and try and see the story that they're living. 

All shots are taken using a Fujifilm X30 digital camera at 28mm, shot in colour and edited in Adobe Lightroom.
