This photo series started as a sense of belonging project in which I was assigned to find people who all belonged to the same "group".

I decided the "group" of people I would photograph would be people who make money on the streets of Toronto. 

Whether they are artists, buskers, or vendors, the only criteria was that they were making a little (or a lot of money) on the streets.

This is an ongoing project.
