A black and white photograph captures the moment five police officers are in deep discussion with a man holding a large sign on wheels that reads "American Jobless Wanted - G20 Desperate unemployed." The photograph is taken in front of the entrance to Canada Trust bank in downtown Toronto. The photograph showcases the strong contrast of the black and white tones and the facial expressions of the people in the photograph, creating a sense of tension and urgency. The sign held by the man with "American Jobless Wanted" written on it adds a layer of social commentary on the state of joblessness during the G20 summit in Toronto, Canada. The background of the photograph, the entrance of the bank, and the city in the background, add context to the photograph and gives the photograph a sense of place.
