A bright, solid book.; B&W Photographs; 208 pages; A collection of photographs of mid-century Vancouver and some other areas of British Columbia, taken between 1945 and 1980. "Otto Landauer was a modest man. He was proud of Vancouver, felt strongly that his photographs recorded the continuum of the history of the city and he had an archivistís determination that the photos he produced with such loving care, like those of his predecessor, Leonard Frank, should be preserved for posterity. But it never would have occurred to Landauer that his personal story mattered. Yet it does. In a substantial introductory biography, Bridges of Light tells the harrowing, heartbreaking and ultimately redeeming story of persecution, survival and the final triumph of Otto Landauerís intrepid faith. It is inseparable from the art of his photographs, and his superb craftsmanship matters to anyone concerned with or at all interested in the history of photography. Otto Landauer was part of a long line of great photographers of the Canadian West, and in the medium of black and white, he was at the magnificent end of that line.A companion piece to and continuation of An Enterprising Life, the first volume in the Leonard Frank Studio publications, Bridges of Light is a beautiful photo art book containing over 300 photographs reproduced in exquisite 200 line screen duotones on wood-free paper."
