The Canadian Landscape
Le Paysage CanadienBook - 2001
Praise for the hardcover edition:
"Kraulis has compiled a lovely volume whose simplicity and elegance accentuates rather than overshadows 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 of Kraulis' exquisite photographs. Each stunning images 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:Atlantic region and sub Arctic St. Lawrence and Great Lakes region Prairies Rocky Mountains West coast rain forests and Pacific Ocean.
The photographs capture a range of views - from colorful wildflowers growing in the Rockies to the subtle shades of gray in an aerial view of the badlands. With only a few exceptions, these photographs portray vast, uninhabited vistas of exceptional grandeur.
The photographer's challenge is to discover these landscapes at the precise moment that they transform from scenic to extraordinary. Such images are found in The Canadian Landscape .
The text and captions are bilingual, English and French.
