It all started by accident in the fall of 2012. Photographer Kevin Morris was exploring Deer Park, a neighborhood in Toronto famous for its Tudor and Colonial revival houses. Years spent as a resident in a "sea of concrete condos" only sparked further fascination. His goal—to show off the character, quirkiness, and beauty of everyday residential architecture in these neighborhoods. To date, he's documented nearly a hundred houses on his blog, House of the Day, with a year-end goal of 1000.
Morris is currently working with fellow Toronto photographer Shane Fester on a new project called The Architecture of Empty debuting in May 2013, as part of Scotiabank's CONTACT Photography Festival in Toronto—the largest in the world.
