Debra SchoenbergerPhotographer​‘s Bio:

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.”

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book was certainly different than most books I typically read. It is nothing but photos of Montreal, Quebec, Canada. The pictures are certainly tasteful and out-of-the-ordinary. They are intriguing, but I am not an authority on photography. Others who are can speak on the professional aspects of the photos.

My only criticism of the book is that I wish there were some captions to accompany the pictures. I would like to know where some of them are taken or what is going on in the picture. I love photos, but for me, stories that accompany photos make the experience that much richer.

I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.
