Inhaltsangabe: To capture the moment one must wait an eternity until the light is perfect, until the shadow is graphic, until the rain has stopped, or until the view from the small lurching airplane spirals toward the decisive image. - From the Preface
In this breathtaking photographic tribute to his adopted country, one of Canada's best-known and top-ranking photographers captures the many faces and moods of this vast land. From the quaint fishing villages of Atlantic Canada to the majesty of the Rocky Mountains, Malak offers a unique visual portrait of the people and places that make up this remarkable nation.
Along with the glorious color landscapes that span the geographic diversity of Canada from ocean to ocean, some of Malak's most memorable black-and-white portraits from the past focus in on the individuals who inhabit this country. And it is this interplay between people and their surroundings that forms the central theme of Canada: The Land That Shapes Us.
Vom Verlag: Malak's place in Canada's formative years is realized in his retrospective of the bold and innovative industries that are portrayed as the powerhouses of the country. But it is perhaps some of Malak's most widely published photographs that have left an indelible impression on the Canadian consciousness, from his many magazine covers to the etching on the now-out0of-circulation dollar bill, made from a photograph depicting the Ottawa River log drive.
Wherever one finds meaning in the photographs within this handsome volume, the photographs also exist simply to delight by capturing the grandeur of the country's awe-inspiring sights. Most importantly, however, this book is a beautifully designed retrospective of a photographer's lifelong love and work.
