About the Book
The result is LIGHT and LINES, his eighth Blurb photography volume, but first to feature contemporary architecture and landscapes.
Ranging through six cities in three Canadian provinces, this new field of photography resembles nature and landscapes in that Frank is still getting up at ridiculous hours of the early morning to make the most compelling pictures possible.
As you wander through LIGHT and LINES, prepare to be captured by his approach to window cleaners, skyscrapers, art installations and more.
