[Peters'] pictures are colorful and technically superb and he has an eye for the odd perspective.  
Canadian Camera 09/2002 
"Toronto" is a handsome book of pictures that any lover of city-photography will treasure.  
Book Description 
This is no ordinary portrait of a city.  
Tim Peters began taking pictures of Toronto's buildings and streetscapes in 1989. With an acute eye for striking detail, unusual contrast and architectural splendor, he has created a portrait of a city that is both intensely colorful and respectful of its history.  
Close-ups of art deco detailing in sandstone facades, neoclassical granite arches, in the financial district, brilliant mosaic tile in Eastern Orthodox churches, and stained glass in graceful old homes mix with the crisp geometric lines of the best new civic architecture. The results are showcased in a splendid, oversized book that includes the human side too.  
Orange turbanned Sikhs, lake freighters against a Lake Ontario sunset, and people framed by the unique wall murals that Toronto's downtown. Filled with full-bleed images and double-page spreads, Toronto is a celebration that any lover of city photography will treasure.
