Photographer Andrew Emond uses only the ambient light of the electrified city for this series called Diversions. Done at night, these gorgeous works carry a luminosity that mimics daylight. It’s part of Emond’s ongoing examination of the effects that flood and erosion control systems have had Toronto’s network of watercourses.
These bodies of water spread out like veins across the landscape, and I walk along or wade through them at night with a heightened sense of awareness that comes when one finds themselves alone in the dark. –Artist Statement
