This year, modern-day explorer Dennis Shigematsu ventured through Asia Minor, photographing scenes in lands between the Black Sea and the Caspian Sea.

On Tuesday and Wednesday, the longtime Lethbridge resident will be showing his annual travelogue at the downtown library.

His no-charge presentation, “Armenia to Baku, Azerbaijan, Tbilisi, Georgia and Yerevan” will include such highlights as the snowcapped Caucasus Mountains, ancient Persian villages, monasteries and “cliff-hanging roads.”

Guests will also see Assyrian cave dwellings and frescoes dating from the fourth century, valleys that resemble Shangri-La, and the Joseph Stalin museum and residence in Georgia.

The event is scheduled for 7 p.m. each day in the library’s Theatre Gallery.
