"Asked to describe the province in which they live, Ontarians turn quickly to superlatives," Jack Chiang writes in his introduction to Celebrating Ontario, and on page after page, his remarkable photographs remind us why.
Widely respected and admired as a "photographer's photographer," Jack Chiang pays homage to the province of Ontario in this magical collection of some 250 full-colour photographic images that celebrate the province from downtown streets of major cities to the sylvan beauty of vast parklands and the quiet charm of small towns and villages.
Divided into the five geographical regions - Eastern, Southwestern, Central, Northern and the densely populated areas surrounding greater Toronto - Celebrating Ontario is both a salute to photographer Jack Chiang's artistry and a tribute to the people from around the world who have chosen to call this province home.
Award winning photographer Jack Chiang was born in China and grew up in Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan. He received his BA from the National University in Taiwan and a master's degree in journalism from Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. His photographs have appeared in major Canadian newspapers as well as in Reader's Digest, the International Herald Tribune and the New York Times. He lives in Kingston, Ontario.
