Review:

This is a gorgeous book of photographs that REALLY showcases how multi-cultural Montreal has become, yet how traditional it still is! With every one of Debra's pictures you can see a story behind the picture, and imagine the scene and what was happening. Her pictures are so nuanced that you find yourself looking at them over and over, and seeing something new every time! I have to admit, her black and whites, are my favorites. But I've always felt there is more story and nuance in black and white photos!

 If you have someone interested in photography, be sure to pick this book up for them for the holidays!






About the Author/ Photographer:

My dad always carried a camera under the seat of his car and was constantly taking pictures. I think that his example, together with pouring over National Geographic magazines as a child fuelled my curiosity for the world around me. Although I worked in the field of photography for over 20 years, it wasn't until very recently in 2010 that I bought myself a secondhand professional camera and started experimenting with street photography. I shot over 50,000 images that first year and gradually began to improve.

Photographers I admire are Vivian Maier, Robert Frank, Steve McCurry and Edward Steichen to name but a few amongst the many incredibly talented people over the last century. Street photography is my true passion. Having a slightly off-kilter sense of humour helps keep me looking for the unusual."  Connect with Debra on her WebsiteFacebook and Twitter pages.
