The City Humanized

ReadingToronto's guest editor, Benny Nemerofsky Ramsay, has made some excellent entries this week. They all fall under the umbrella of 'Memory Maps' with both text and illustration. The text is poignant and moving in relating personal experiences without being either tawdry or sentimental. The illustrations vividly depict how a city's geography becomes highly personal and charged, bringing an internal landscape to the real world. This is how our cities become living entities and active agents in our lives and memories. I really recommend checking it out as well as the artist's own site. The trailer he did for the Stuttgarter Filmwinter is a personal favourite.
