Queen Street in the canadian city Toronto (Ontario) is a major east–west thoroughfare crossing its city centre.
This block near the major intersection of Queen and Spadina is anchored by the four-storey Cameron House, a cultural hot-spot. The front of the live music venue at street level features a living mural that has been painted and repainted by artist John Abrams since the 1980s. In this picture it features Brigitte Bardot.
This street front is one of 36 panoramas in Portraits of Queen West: Spadina to Bathurst. The book is a result of a 20 year project documenting the 5km of Queen St. West, one of Toronto’s most famous streets, known for its diverse culture, fashion and music scenes. Photographer/graphic designer Kevin Steele is now assembling these photographs in a series of books. The first book, Portraits of Queen West: Spadina to Bathurst is now available for preorder online.
