The variety of bridges in Toronto is extensive. For such a ‘flat’ city, the hills and hollows that must be accommodated are surprisingly numerous. Many images of these connectors often depict their horizontal spans, their surface efficiency and elegant reach. Images of spaces below the bridge are not as plentiful and they often depict unsavory aspects of a city. In this photo essay, Toronto photographer Alex Ioannou shot a series of “under the bridge” images not typically captured in photos of bridges. The startling visions of altitude and grandeur occasionally evoke cathedrals while others display function in the heart of a city.
