A captivating meditation on the nature of cities and how we see ourselves in relation to them. Written in travelogue form, this marvelous text is presented beside the authors own black-and-white photographs.

Although it explores themes that are characteristic of Burgin's earlier theoretical and visual works, Some Cities is a unique insight into the artist's mind.
