Inspirations – Nicolas Levesque

This photograph is from a series called “The Queen’s Living Room“. One week shooting on Queen Street from East to West. I wanted to show this oldest East/West street, and all its contrasts in human moments. From stylish people who look like stars, to the strange and lost, looks like Queen street will always be the same. This photograph took me 15 minutes to find. I saw the man, earlier on the other corner of Younge and Queen, but the photograph I took of him wasn’t good. Then I saw this woman smoking alone. I thought of a picture but abandoned the idea. I went away for 2 minutes for another picture, and when I came back, the woman was still there and the man just sat down to read. I passed by, and very quickly, I made 4 photographs. This is what I kept.
