What makes a place special? Is it possible to discover the fantastical hidden in the familiar? If so, what might that look like? Spirit City is an ongoing project which address some of these questions while hopefully raising others. Combining my interests in urban landscapes, travel and mythology, the images suggest that the magical and the mundane can indeed coexist in the most unlikely of places, if only we look closely enough.
My first book, Spirit City Toronto, was published by Koyama Press in 2010 but is sold out and currently out of print. However, I'm hard at work finding new spirits in other cities! Feel free to also visit my other site, aaronleighton.com, my Instagram page or my art collective, Trio Magnus.
