If, as the saying goes, every picture is worth 1000 words, then Matt O’Sullivan’s must be worth 10,000.
Many photographers aim to capture our city and it’s wealth of stories, but it can be argued that nobody portrays these stories better than Matt. Since 2004, O’Sullivan has been documenting slices of Toronto life on his website, The Narrative, connecting you to subjects most people don’t ever take a second glance at. Matt seems to have this uncanny ability to always be in the right place at the right time (we’ve seen it), as if the stories he captures seek him out rather than the other way around. His ability to draw you in and make you truly feel what you’re looking at is what sets him apart and makes his work outstanding.
Lucky for us, Matt is participating in the ongoing photography series at Le Petit Dejeuner, which features the work of Toronto photobloggers each month. If you’ve never seen his work in print, we highly recommend it.
