"In this unusual book, carefully matched before-and-after photographs are used to explore Southern Ontario's landscapes. As might be expected, the photos depict a dramatic reworking of the urban environment, particularly on the 'urban frontier' where the countryside is disappearing under a wave of development. But even our seemingly changeless rural scenery, when viewed with the aid of time-lapse photography, is shown to be evolving - and in some unexpected ways."
