From delicate wildflowers to epic skyscrapers, tranquil farmland to iconic waterfalls, Frank King's camera eye has ranged over the length and breadth of the southern half of the Canadian province of Ontario.
Frank King's Southern Ontario, his sixth Blurb photography volume, includes pictures made 30 years ago with negative film all the way up to the latest digital 'captures'.
No matter what the technology, however, Frank has strived to show this vast, busy region is so much more than shopping malls and faceless suburbia. Even if you know southern Ontario, you may be surprised at all its photographic wonders.
His other Blurb photography books are:
Blue Symphony: Winter in the Canadian Rockies;
The Alberta Badlands: A Landscape Portrait;
Ireland: Visions of Light;
Special Places: A Landscape Photographer's Vision of Southern Ontario and;
Moments of Light: Thirty Years of Photography.
Frank has also published two books of non-fiction:
The Gender Divide Runs Through my Dishwasher! (And Other Stories of Life, Faith and Mystery);
'Til the Soul Felt its Worth: Glimpses of Faith, Love and Eternity
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
