Photographer Avard Woolaver moved to Toronto in 1980 to study photography at Ryerson University. During his transition from rural Nova Scotia to Downtown Toronto he captured images of life, people and places around him. His work embodies a sense of nostalgia as viewers look at his photos and are reminded of a time that wasn't too far away but very different from life today. You can buy his book "Toronto Flashback (1980-1986)" here.
