À propos du livre
Near and Far documents the collection of paired photographs that hang in the eighty-one family suites at Ronald McDonald House Toronto. Each pair consists of one aerial and one detail photograph, some from places close by and some from far and wide in the world. They are remarkable for their visual impact and for their play on scale, pattern and colour. Some are whimsical. All of them arouse curiosity and wonder.
The collection and the book are inspired by the hope, strength and resilience of families. We hope that this book causes your thoughts to wander and makes you smile.
