“Brickworks Windows” – Evergreen Brickworks, Toronto

“Brickworks Windows” - Evergreen Brickworks, Toronto

I spent a bit of time today at the Evergreen Brickworks, in the Don Valley area of Toronto. This was an operating Brickworks till 1989, when it was decommissioned. The building sat abandoned till a few years ago when a significant restoration was started. It is a beautiful mix of nature and industry. The old clay quarry has been repurposed with walking trails and ponds and the buildings have been designed to incorporate elements of the old industrial buildings and modern market space. I love the slightly abandoned and misused appearance of some of the original buildings. The red brick, often tattooed in graffiti and marked with signed of age. This is one of a series of photographs I made. The fogged windows add to the mystery of what might lie behind them, yet the lamp serves to illuminate that mystery.
