"A lovely volume whose simplicity and elegance accentuate rather than overshadow this visual introduction to the beauty of Canada."
-Photovision

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.

J.A. Kraulis is to Canadian photography what the Group of Seven was to Canadian landscape painting ... After leafing through this lush book, all I can say is, 'Oh, Canada!'
