Canada The Land That Shapes Us Essay Newman Photography Malak with Dust Jacket
Canada The Land That Shapes Us by Essay by Peter C Newman Photography by Malak with Dust Jacket 160 pages of photos Originally published at $39.95.
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 colour landscapes that span the geographic diversity of Canada from ocean to ocean, some of Malak's most memorable blackand-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.
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-out-of-circulation one 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.
Malak has had photographic exhibitions at the National Arts Centre in Ottawa, the Ottawa Congress Centre, and in Holland. His awards include Photographer of the Year and the National Film Board's Gold Medal. His past books include the visually arresting Ottawa. Malak's photographs have graced many Canadian and international publications, including Canadian Geographic, Saturday Night, Reader's Digest, and The New York Times.
