Toronto photographer M. Ismail turns his editorial shoots in to dark, soul-searching narratives. Models under his direction are free to wonder the streets and aren't fixed to a specific site. Instead, they are allowed to wander and look for inspiration throughout the downtown core of the city and interact with pedestrians.

M. Ismail's black and white photography brings out the model's emotions and the mood of the city.

Implications - Additionally, Ismali's unique take on fashion photography puts the fashions into a context that has the power to appeal to a variety of viewers, who can identify with the relationship between the model, the clothing and the setting which inspires them.
