Over a decade ago, four friends made a 1000 Km trek on foot across Spain, on the Camino de Santiago. One was Oliver Schroer, a world-renowned violinist who made a point of gracing every church en route with his music. Another was Peter Coffman, writer and photographer, who has captured the majesty of the walk, the people, the country and the spirit of the journey in his new book Camino.
Lauded by Shelagh Rogers, David Whyte, and John Brierley, Camino has inspired the imaginations of those both familiar and unfamiliar with the transformative power of giving oneself over to "The Way." Coffman has created something new and powerful, with grand photography paired with quiet written meditations.
Printed in Canada, Camino is the latest publication of Wintergreen Studios Press. Accompanying the book, which is available at the launch and through select Ottawa bookstores, are previously unreleased tracks of Oliver Schroer's music.
Camino is a book and an homage to an exceedingly long walk, the music played en route, and four friends who are now three.
