"A lovely volume whose simplicity and elegance accentuate rather than overshadow this visual introduction to the beauty of Canada."
A flash of lightning explodes across a summer sky; a sudden winter storm descends on an otherwise tranquil coastal bay; in a moment of absolute stillness, the surface of a mirror-like lake reflects the world around it.
The Canadian Landscape is a collection of more than 125 sweeping images by internationally acclaimed photographer J.A. Kraulis. Each stunning picture tells the tale of a vast country and of a photographer's relationship with it. The text consists of a concise introduction and short, descriptive captions that accompany each photograph.
The book is organized east to west by region, covering:
- The Atlantic and sub Arctic regions
- The St. Lawrence and Great Lakes regions
- The Prairies
- The Rocky Mountains
- The West coast rainforests and the Pacific Ocean.
The photographs capture a range of views and portray vast, uninhabited vistas of exceptional grandeur.
The bilingual text and captions are in English and French.close this panel
