The City in Sound and Image
Listen to the sounds of an Indonesian bird market, or traffic in Cairo's Ramses Square. Scroll through photographs of Turkish street scenes or Vegas motel signs. Marc Voelckel collects urban soundscapes and landscapes on his website, ruavista.com. He is interested in promoting "a new form of urban tourism based upon visiting ordinary streets and paying attention to details rather than famous spots and beautiful architecture."
