It's easy to think of the southern half of the Canadian province of Ontario as little more than mind-numbing suburbia and traffic.
Indeed, that's how Canadian writer and photographer Frank King considered the region - until he moved there in 2000 with a resolve to search out soul-restoring landscapes.
He found so many that it was a challenge to limit himself to four locations for Special Places.
Each place is unique and while he couldn't get to them in all four seasons, Frank did have at least two visits to capture as complete a portrait as possible.
Frank's other self-published books include:
- Ireland: Visions of Light
- The Alberta Badlands: A Landscape Portrait.
- Moments of Light: Thirty Years of Photography
- Blue Symphony: Winter in the Canadian Rockies
- 'Til the SOUL felt its WORTH: Glimpses of Faith, Love and Eternity
- The GENDER DIVIDE Runs Through My DISHWASHER and other Stories of Life, Faith and Mystery
For more than 30 years, Frank King has juggled making pictures with his career, first in journalism and now as Communications Manager with the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association of Canada/Samaritan's Purse Canada. Besides Ireland, he's photographed extensively in British Columbia, Alberta, Ontario and Quebec. His awards include Best in Show at the 1982 Markham Fair and Honourable Mention in the 2010 Calgary Stampede Photo Competition. His work has been featured in calendars by CBC Radio (Calgary), the Calgary Herald, Beautiful British Columbia magazine and the Irish Canadian Society of Calgary. He lives in Calgary, Alberta with wife Lori and an eccentric cat. "Frank is one of those rare people ... who makes each of his wonderful images seem like a masterpiece, with great care given to the details, as well as the overall composition and statement." -- Photographer Ed Brodzinsky, flickr.com
