A Voyage Of Discovery

In 1992 I took off on a flight with two friends in our Challenger ultralight floatplanes. With no destination in mind, we followed the St. Lawrence River west to the Thousand Islands, a region of spectacular beauty. I was stunned by what I saw. I am now the current steward of Raleigh Island, just one in its long history. It has become my life’s work to celebrate and help protect this rare, magical place.

Every once in a while an entry comes across the judging table that totally enthralls us. We quickly forget where we are and what we are doing. We become spectators, not judges. Such was the case with an eBook app called One in a Thousand. With the first image you drift away to that place in your brain where you see and feel pure beauty and nirvana. Instantly, the images and words infiltrate your imagination.

What Were the Chances?

Written with acclaimed novelist Donna Walsh Inglehart, One is a story of discovery. When Ian Coristine found Raleigh, he was already on a remarkable journey, as a formula race car driver in his early years, then a pilot and entrepreneur. Through the process of restoring the abandoned hundred-year old cottage on Raleigh Island, Ian reinvented his life. He found a new home and, unexpectedly, a new career, becoming an iconic photographer of the Thousand Islands. Ian eventually published five best-selling books, two winning the coveted international Benjamin Franklin Award for Excellence in Publishing. He was selected as an Image Master by DXO Labs in Paris.

Marcom Award

lyrical prose, stunning visuals and evocative melodies... The app's interactive components lend a sense of splendid immediacy...that imagination alone could never match. The narrative is vibrant enough on its own, but riding alongside the author in his ultralight...adds compelling new dimensions to the telling.
