Peter Sramek announces Version 2.2 of Paris After Marville, published in the Apple App Store this week!

In celebration, a sale price of .99¢ ($1.39 CAD)  is available this week only after which it will be set at $3.99 CAD which is a bargain for the archival material included.

The new version solves an issue that blocked starting-up without a WiFI connection (thanks to Aquafadas’ constantly improving compiler) and a few navigation improvements that make the user interface more intuitive. My OCAD U students found the application easy to use without explanation, so I am quite satisfied. 

If you have been curious about what Paris After Marville is all about and you wish to support my project, head to the App Store and search for ‘Sramek’ or ‘Marville’ and download it to your iPhone or iPad. One purchase will allow both. Pass the word on to any and all who love Paris, history, photography - either as armchair travellers or with flight plans to the City of Lights.

Peter Sramek has taught photography at OCAD since 1976 during which time he has also assumed various administrative roles including Acting Head of Photography, Acting Chair of Technological Studies, Acting Dean, Assistant Dean and Associate Dean in the Faculty of Art. He has been Co-ordinator of the Florence Off-Campus Studies Program 3 times, most recently in the fall of 2007. He was a founding member of Gallery 44 Centre for Contemporary Photography and carries on an active practice in both photography and book arts which encompasses film-based and digital processes, as well as excursions into video installation, audio and sculpture.
