“Heart of Turtle Island: The Niagara Escarpment” with Mark Zelinski, Award-winning photography since 1977

Mark Zelinski’s diverse career as a professional photographer has taken him across 80 countries.

A Governor General’s Medal-winner Zelinski is best known for his Books That Heal initiative – donating 7,000 copies of his photography books to 100 worldwide charities.

His nine internationally acclaimed photography books include forewords by HRH Prince Philip, The Honourable Lincoln Alexander, AFN Ontario Regional Chief Isadore Day and The Right Honourable Justin Trudeau.

His ninth book “Heart Of Turtle Island: The Niagara Escarpment” brings exquisite focus to the environmental treasures of the Niagara Escarpment UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve, and to the diverse Indigenous and settler communities that thrive along its rugged, curving path.

Members will have an offer to purchase the book at 30% discount, $35 cash only.
