Documentary photographer, Douglas Maclellan's first book, In the Face of It: Photographs from Leamington, Uganda, Windsor, and Zimbabwe are a collection of stories and photographs from his experiences while travelling the world. The Hockey Hall of Fame photographer captures a variety of themes surrounding community organizations, international health, migrant workers, and poverty in diverse locations. Douglas gives a unique insight into everyday life in communities that seem far away but oddly reflect the ones outside our own front doors.
The touching stories are brought to life through colourful photographs creating a sensory—filled narrative. From vineyard farmers to Queen's Park rioters, this book brings in readers from all walks of life who have an interest in communities and its residents. With over twenty—five years of independent professional photography experience, including the title of official photographer for the Toronto International Film Festival and the University of Windsor, Douglas captures authentic and dignified moments in time. This book is meant to be used, referenced, and shared throughout life, therefore, having small dimensions to create the perfect travel companion, fitting pleasantly in a purse or tote bag.
