About the Book
It was only a few days, so no way to get beyond the status of spectator, but then the city was full of visitors, most of them shopping or gazing around like us. And so, no revelations or social commentaries, simply the specular enjoyment of being in the world.
Peter Sramek has been a photographic artist since 1970 and has taught at the Ontario College of Art & Design University in Toronto since 1976.
