In Canada's Atlantic provinces it is often said - by visitors and locals alike - that you can point a camera in almost any direction, click, and take home a picture-perfect memory.

Jack Chiang has done just that, but with the precision and artistry that have earned him accolades for his ability to capture the perfect picture at the perfect time and a talent honed over a lifetime of photography that has secured his reputation as "a photographer's photographer" in the eyes of his peers.

In New Brunswick, Chiang offers up images, not just of St.Andrews-by-the-Sea, Moncton's Tidal Bore and Magnetic Hill, the "flower pots" of Hopewell, and the historic streets of Saint John, but of Acadian festivals, the salmon rich waters of the Miramichi and Restigouche Rivers, the Fundy tides, and a myriad of towns and villages off the beaten track.

In Nova Scotia, Chiang's photos of Halifax, Peggy's Cove, Lunenburg, Kejimkujik and the Cabot Trail tell untold stories, while others open the viewers' eyes to "Canada's Ocean Playground" and its interior with images seldom if ever seen before.

Prince Edward Island and the island of Newfoundland are photographed by Chiang in kind. The red clay soil of Anne of Green Gables' country, the springtime icebergs off St. John's, the moose, the whales, the immensity and magnetic sweep of Labrador are presented in magnificent colour. So too, the beaches, flora and fauna of P.E.I. sit side by side with Chiang's brilliantly captured images of Lucy Maud Montgomery's "Green Gables" and rich red soil of the Island farms.

Like Jack Chiang's previous books - Images of Kingston and Celebrating Ontario - the two new books being published
in the spring of 2006 contain dozens of photography tips for anyone interested in improving their picture-taking skills, be they experienced photographers or beginners with simple equipment.
