A CRANE OPERATOR WITH HIS CAMERA CAPTURES TORONTO’S DOWNTOWN CORE

CRANE5 Robert MacFarlane has been working on the L Tower, 210 metres (58 storeys) above city streets, in TORONTO’s St. Lawrence Market neighbourhood. He’s a full-time construction crane operator and part-time photographer, recording images of the city from a vantage point off limits to most of us.
