Brian Doucet

Urban Geographer


I use photography to explore various aspects of urban change, and use those images to help enhance public and policy discourse about themes such as mobility, transportation, housing and urban inequalities. My work tries to document the ordinary spaces and practices in cities, how places change, and how photography can be part of critical dialogues about contemporary cities. I have published articles on visual methodologies in urban studies and am currently finishing a book with the University of Toronto Press which uses repeat photography (the practice of rephotographing the same spaces at different moments in time) in order to better understand long-term trends and changes in Toronto.

These photo pages are a work in progress. There's always more time to take photographs than there is to sit and organise them!
