Mongolia: Within the Frame

by Robert Prior

Mongolia, once at the centre of Genghis Khan’s empire, is being transformed from a small struggling economy into one that’s thriving; yet despite the pull of modernization, the centuries old nomadic way of life can still be experienced. I’ve dreamed of travelling to Mongolia for years, ever since I saw the film Mongol and fell in love with the wide open landscape. It was a destination that seemed out of reach to a middle-aged urbanite until David duChemin and Jeffrey Chapman organized a Within the Frame photo tour.

This book is the result of that trip. The tour was to be “an adventure full of the passionate discovery and photography of people, place and culture, with emphasis given to going deep not wide.” Ironically, I fell in love with the wide expanses and produced hundreds of panoramas, the best of which are presented, in high definition, in this book.

Mongolia: Within the Frame is divided into three themes: Mongolians, Landscapes, and Religions. Each is filled with photographs and interactive panoramas.

Winter Wonderland: Beautiful Destruction

by Robert Prior

On December 20, 2013, southern Ontario was hit with an ice storm followed by a deep freeze. Over an inch of ice accumulated in some places, breaking branches and cutting off power to many houses. In the deep freeze that followed, hydro crews worked in -30° temperatures to reconnect electricity, but many households were without power for a week.

I was lucky. My neighbourhood has underground power lines, and while it was dangerously slippery we could actually enjoy the beauty of the storm and its aftermath.

This short 14-page book contains photographs and interactive panoramas showing the beauty of the ice storm.
