A long-time musical collaboration between Ray Luedeke and Ronald Hurwitz culminated in performances of their recent work, The Art of Love: Into The Labyrinth. The experimental concert-piece combined original music by Mr. Luedeke for two pianos,narrator/actor, and text adapted from The Art of Love: Into The Labyrinth by Ovid. A surrealistic video, shot in Paris by Mr. Hurwitz, and projected on a skrim in front of the pianists and "roaming" actor, tied the tripartite elements together for maximum effect. The performances, which took place in the Yamaha Salon at 689 Fifth Avenue and again the following year at Merkin Hall, 129 West 67th Street in New York, were well received by an attentive audience.

In her article for the Concord, New Hampshire Monitor, Victoria Shouldis writes: "There is a certain music to photographs by Ronald Hurwitz: a rhythm and symmetry to “Café, Lait, Bière”, a portrait from 2000 with its perfect four chairs, two tables and, espied inside the door, a lone character. Or in his 1985 mirrored-image of New York's Chrysler Building, the shadows and light reflecting a perfect double chorus."

January 2004
From the Toronto Star, Sunday, January 25, 2004, Bill Taylor, Feature writer for the Toronto Star, interviewed Ronald Hurwitz for his column, Toronto Profile #15, The People who Make the City. "Since he first picked up a camera in the late 1970's, Hurwitz has built a world-wide reputation for the artistry of his black-and-white prints. Though he has a couple of Toronto projects in mind, his favorite place to shoot is Paris where, influenced by the work of Brassaï, Eugène Atget, and Édouard Boubat, he imparts a haunting, pre-war feel to the modern city".
