In 2014, John Sylvester is celebrating his 30th year of photographing some of Canada's most remarkable places. This book is a retrospective of his main inspiration -- Prince Edward Island. It includes much new material, but also includes many beloved classic images that have graced the pages of his previous books. Prince Edward Island: Landscape and Light takes us on a journey showcasing John Sylvester's approach to photography, not only making images at the edge of day and night, but also the nature of photographing on an Island, where both the landscape and the light inspires his spectacular work.
