Perched on the edge of the North Atlantic Ocean where the sea is ever-present, the Peggy’s Cove Preservation Area includes thousands of acres of a distinctive barrens landform of rugged shoreline, salt marshes, small lakes and boggy areas. At its centre is the iconic fishing village of Peggy’s Cove and its famous lighthouse. The weather can be changeable and the winds fierce, but the landscape has raw beauty in every season.

This collection of 100 photographs by Kent Martin reflects the seasons and the range of natural history on display. He pays attention to the wide landscape and ever-changing skies, but also the smaller world of mosses, flowers, birds, people and animals.

KENT MARTIN is a filmmaker who has produced more than 100 films and television series. His work has garnered more than 20 Genie and Gemini awards and nominations. Over the last five years he has been photographing the landscape around his home close to Peggy’s Cove. He lives in St Margaret’s Bay, Nova Scotia.
