From the Toronto Star, Sunday, January 25, 2004, Bill Taylor, Feature writer for the Toronto Star, interviewed Ronald Hurwitz for his column, Toronto Profile #15, The People who Make the City. "Since he first seriously picked up a camera in the late 1970's, Hurwitz has built a world-wide reputation for the artistry of his black-and-white prints. Though he has a couple of Toronto projects in mind, his favourite place to shoot is Paris where, influenced by the work of Brassaï, Eugène Atget, and Édouard Boubat, he imparts a haunting, pre-war feel to the modern city".
