Have you ever heard of a photography book where the photos come alive with a song? Photos and Songs of a Pronoic Physician is a special collection of spectacular photographs from around the world. Each photo is complemented with a poem/song about life.
A variety of images of sunsets, beaches, monkeys, butterflies and people will capture your imagination and take you on a journey. The songs will inspire, stimulate and remind you of our humanity. Dr. Borins explains, "I have wanted to share my favorite images of far away places. We live on a small planet and photos are a way to remind us of our unity and what a beautiful place we live in. Whether it is a Warrior from Irian Jaya or a Sunset from Bali, the photo triggers our imagination. The brain has difficulty differentiating between what is real and what is imagined. When you look at my photos, you mind will wander. It helps to remember that our planet is a friendly, amazing place".
Everyone who looks at the photos are struck by the variety, the mood, the composition and the appealing nature of the images. But that's not all. A CD of 21 songs written and produced by Dr. Borins are found enclosed on the back of each book. These songs are quite unique and eclectic. You*ll hear original songs from many different genres like Rock, Folk, Country and Western, and World Music. The pleasing melodies, poetic lyrics and extensive breadth of subject matter will give you lots to think about. The more you listen, the more you'll be reminded of our humanity.
Put on the CD, turn to the photos and be prepared for a unique experience.
