Sorry vegetarians, you won't like this one. Part of a series on daily life in Etobicoke, the series was canned and this ended up running as a heavily cropped single.
Mark Ali saws up a berkshire pork in the back of his shop, The Village Butcher, at 132 6th St. on The Lakeshore. Ali, who has been in the neighbourhood for the past 5 years, cuts a 250 pound pig into meal-sized portions every Tuesday. (May 15, 2012) Copyright Mary Gaudet/Etobicoke Guardian

- 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.
