Spacing is happy to announce that it’s publisher and creative director, Matthew Blackett, is set to release his first photography book, The Beautiful Mess of Toronto Laneways.
In this unique book, Blackett visually explores the condition of Toronto’s laneways, where century-old garages and former workshops are locked in a constant battle with modernity, graffiti, and nature itself. Many of Toronto’s laneways are messy, dilapidated, overgrown, hazardous... and also strikingly beautiful. The distinct structures featured in this book not only shed a light on those who used these spaces before us, but reveal so much more about ourselves than our prim-and-proper front yards.
