German photo exhibition provides snapshot of ‘Frankfurt Day to Day’
  
In celebration of the 20-year partnership between Toronto and Frankfurt am Main, the City of Toronto will host the “Frankfurt Day to Day” photo exhibition by Alexander Paul Englert. The photographs will be on display at Metro Hall, 55 John St., from October 26 to 30.

The union between Toronto and Frankfurt am Main was established to strengthen business and cultural links in economics, finance, trade, tourism, urban planning, education and culture, in the hope of enhancing each city’s vitality and quality of life.

A.P. Englert captures Frankfurt's residents in a way that provides an unsentimental record of the metropolis. The photographs in the series show various sides of the local Frankfurt context: the Kleinmarkthalle market hall, the Eiserne Steg Bridge, the Stadel art museum, the Romer building, the Zeil shopping mile and Bethmann Park, without treating them as tourist attractions. This photo exhibit will give Torontonians insight into “Frankfurt Day to Day.”

"I am always interested in people, how they live and how they organize their everyday life,” said A. P. Englert. “This is what makes partner cities such interesting places - the fact that you get to know the different situations of people’s lives in their daily routines and on special occasions. I am very excited to come to Toronto. I am interested in the sights the city has to offer, the citizens, the way they live and work.”

Toronto is Canada's largest city and sixth largest government and home to a diverse population of about 2.6 million people. It is the economic engine of Canada and one of the greenest and most creative cities in North America. Toronto has won numerous awards for quality, innovation and efficiency in delivering public services. 2009 marks the 175th anniversary of Toronto's incorporation as a city. Toronto's government is dedicated to prosperity, opportunity and liveability for all its residents.
