Apple Photo App extracting photo meta data

Years ago I started taking pictures of the audio book dust covers of what I’ve listened to. I used some of the meta data tags to capture Title, Author and have a query in the Photo app where I can subset all the books I’ve listened to.

My goal is to extract that meta data and pull it into an Xcode App where I can supplement with more meta data. My UI goal is to have my phone app allow me to sort the titles, authors, etc. So while at the library I can use in searching the local library shelves.

As I have almost 700 books I don’t want to build the ‘data base’ & associate the pix from scratch, would like to leverage what I’ve established

I’m stuck on how to get to/ extract the meta data associated with the Photos. Looking for some examples on how to… have not found anything on YouTube or GitHub
