Faces of the Danforth

By: Nick Brehmer, Alicia Kolenda, and Katie Yantzi

Faces of the Danforth is a photography project inspired by Brandon Stanton’s “Humans of New York.” Much like its inspiration, Faces of the Danforth strives to feature members of a community and connect those people on a more human level. Walking up and down the streets of the city, you see so many unique people; you might be surprised to discover that you have similar experiences or that you are indeed vastly different. Regardless, we hope you find the visuals of the Faces of the Danforth posts to be as inspirational as we do.

“Everyone thinks I’m Greek, but I’m not. I’m Spanish. Do you want to know what I do?”


“I’m an artist–a painter. My work is in the gallery.”

“Oh, one on the Danforth?”

“No, in the AGO.”

“Just a picture?”

“And maybe a few questions…”

“Oh, no. I’m shy. You can take my picture though. Can I put my glasses on?”

“What program at Ryerson is the survey for?”

“Urban planning.”

“We’re in our third year.”

“That’s interesting. Do you’ll think you stay and urban plan in Toronto when you’re done?”

“Yeah I think so. Getting a job here in the field is pretty easy.”

“I want to travel.”
