MacCallum’s photographs contribute to this ongoing examination of urban form. Shot from 2007 to 2011, they set up a direct comparison between two central streets in two very different cities: Yonge Street in Toronto and Rue du Faubourg Saint Denis in Paris. MacCallum’s photos explore Yonge Street as a North American urban canyon, documenting everything from 19th-century row buildings to the latest megastructures supporting jumbo signage at Dundas Square.
