Toronto, ON – Toronto based photography, Drew Yorke, will be presenting his debut solo exhibit Live From The Pit on Thursday, Oct. 20. The exhibition will take place at the Blank Canvas Gallery and will feature Drew’s favourite pictures captured throughout his young career.

If you are not familiar with Drew and his work, he is by far one of the hardest working photographers supporting Toronto’s music scene. He has become a staple at every festival, concert, release event or production involving live music.

Drew has been able to capture the likes of Drake, Future, A$AP Rocky, Tyler the Creator, Chance the Rapper, Skepta, Metro Boomin, FKA Twigs, Rae Sremmurd, Ty Dolla $ign, Pusha T, Desiigner, Post Malone, Tory Lanez, Lil Yachty, Lil Uzi Vert, Danny Brown, Jazz Cartier, PARTYNEXTDOOR, Kehlani, Run the Jewels and Joey Bada$$ to name a few. All in addition to having contributed to the likes of Sidewalk Hustle, The Come Up Show, Manifesto Festival, Rap Season and individual solo features in HYPETRAK & Hypebeast – it’s safe to say Drew has solidified himself as one of Canada’s brightest young creatives.

The Live From The Pit exhibit will feature special guest performances and complimentary beverages courtesy of Kraken Rum & Amsterdam Brewery. Check out the official flyer after the jump.
