Wallace MacAskill (1887-1956) is one of Nova Scotia's foremost photographers, lauded for his portraits of seascapes, sailing and fishing ships, and picturesque landscapes. In this remarkable collection of then and now photographs, Len Wagg follows in the footsteps of 50 of MacAskill's best shots, recreating them in colour contemporary portraits. Through side-by-side comparisons, readers see how much has changed, and how much has remarkably remained the same. Included are urban streetscapes, important events and monuments, and spectacular scenery from around the province, Halifax to Louisbourg, Chester to Pictou. The 100 photographs in this book are captioned with short anecdotes conveying the significance of the images and the process of finding the location for some of MacAskill's original work. Includes a foreword from Garry Shutlack.
Len Wagg’s photographs have appeared in such publications as the New York Times, Time Magazine,and Maclean’s. In 2008 Len won the Mayor’s Award forExcellence in Book Illustration for the book Wild NovaScotia, his photographic portrait of the province’s protected areas. He lives near Halifax, Nova Scotia.
