Welcome to ‘I Am torontonian,’ a photography project by Semco Salehi in Toronto. The goal of this project is to capture the diversity and individuality of the people on the streets of Toronto through portraits and their stories. The project aims to showcase the humanity and the unique experiences of the people living in the city.

As a photographer, Semco has always been drawn to capturing candid moments and the beauty of everyday life. With ‘I Am torontonian,’ Semco hopes to give a voice to those who may not always be heard and to create a visual representation of the Toronto’s diverse population.

Each photo is accompanied by a short story, shared by the person in the portrait, giving a personal insight into their lives, experiences and perspectives. Through this project, Semco hopes to create a deeper understanding and connection between the people of Toronto and to break down stereotypes and prejudices.

The project will also feature a gallery where the photographs and stories will be on display for the public. This is a chance to see the faces and hear the voices of the people who make up the vibrant community of Toronto.

Thank you for visiting ‘I Am Torontonian.’ this is not just a photography project, it’s a community project. It’s a celebration of the diversity and humanity of the people of Toronto. It’s a reminder that we are all connected and that every person has a unique story to tell. We hope that this project will inspire empathy and understanding, and that it will continue to grow and evolve as it captures more stories from the streets of Toronto.

We hope you enjoy the photographs and stories as much as we have enjoyed creating them.”
