I was at the Distillery District in Toronto the other day and came across the All in the Wild Gallery, featuring outstanding photography by Canada's own Jason Leo Bantle. The image above, "Repurposed Ride", capturing a mother raccoon as she exits her new home in the bush in Central Canada immediately caught my eye.
Jason grew up in rural Saskatchewan and after spending time in the Arctic developed a real interest in photography. His ultimate goal is for his photographic art to inspire a love for Mother Nature.
Well Jason, if my love for Mother Nature wasn't deep enough already, you did succeed to deepen it even more. And your efforts in preserving Canadian wilderness through your All in the Wild Land Trust spoke to me too, fitting in nicely with our 1% of our future challenge.
All in the Wild has galleries in Banff, Canmore, Saskatoon, Niagara on the Lake and Toronto. Visit their website for locations and to get an idea of Jason's inspirational work. Then be sure to visit one of the galleries to purchase images in any size and format.
