Picking up my weekly pay package
Just a regular payday for a regular photojournalist.
Joking! This is a police display of some of the contraband snagged during Operation Marvel, the largest joint-force take down of organized crime in Canadian history. They also showed us handguns and rifles, picked up as they made 6o arrests across the county. (Copyright Mary Gaudet/Toronto Community News. Dec. 14, 2011)

- I'm a photojournalist based in Toronto, Canada. I started working in the summer of 2010, shooting for weekly newspapers, magazines, and the web, after a year at Loyalist College in Belleville, Ontario. My background is in anthropology, and graduate studies took me to South America to look at social change and political empowerment. I try to bring together my anthropology and photography studies in my work, since at their best both are about looking closely to find revealing moments, so we can better understand one another's lives.
