John Maclennan has been photographing the labour movement in Ontario for over a decade. From strikes, to rallies, to conventions and direct actions, Maclennan's lens has documented the many and diverse faces of the people involved in the struggle to improve the lives of workers across our province.
A member of the Communications, Energy and Paperworkers Union, his work offers a unique, grassroots perspective of the province's labour movement, focusing on the front line workers, students and activists that reflect the movement's commitments to social justice and embue and embody union solidarity - truly the spirit of our movement.
