October 2, 2023 to October 21, 2023: Canada's Secret Island by Stewart Stein

Open to the Public on Mondays, October 2, 9, and 16 from 5:30pm to 7:00pm and
Saturday, October 23, from 11:00am to 2:00pm

Stewart Stein, a Toronto Camera Club member since 2015, has been pursuing photography since he was a teenager, inspired and encouraged by his father, an avid photographer. He feels most comfortable behind the camera as being more of an introvert. If you browse Stewart’s Instagram images you'll see that just about everything interests him from nature to street photography. His interests outside of photography include astronomy, painting andsketching, stone carving, mycology and birding.

Grand Manan (NB) Island located on Canada’s east coast, in the Bay of Fundy, is a jewel of an island. Steeped in Maritime history, rich in natural beauty, geology, birds and sea life, Grand Manan Island is a photographer’s paradise. However, most people have never heard of it and cannot locate it on a map. It is as though a secret. Images of the island skilfully captured by Stewart will surely wet viewers appetite to explore Grand Manan island for themselves.
