All of these wannabes come into the city via the freeways, missing out on the real struggles, ruins and the beauty of people surviving against the aids, to come shoot a bunch of masturbatory timelapses.

Rebirth. Hardly. Your photography lacks truth, it’s like choosing a neglected, sick and starving person holding a bouquet of roses as your subject and choosing to take all of your photos of the petals of the flower, ignoring the humanity holding that rose up.

Show me your best shot from Livernois and Joy and then you can tell us about the beauty of the city. Until then go back to the ‘burbs.
