The natural, rugged beauty of Georgian Bay has inspired generations of Canadian artists, including Tom Thomson and A.Y. Jackson.
Georgian Bay is a vacation haven, with crowds assembling at the many beautiful sandy beaches like Wasaga Beach, or the solitude of the windswept, rocky, and sparsely treed islands that cottagers and tourists alike will visit by motorboat, sailboat, kayak, or canoe.
Grandmaison lived in the Georgian Bay area for some twenty-five years. With camera in hand, he has explored the region by foot, canoe, and kayak, to capture those intimate photographs that represent the essence of the area, whether it is a chunk of glacier-scraped pink or white granite inhabited by a lone, windswept pine, or an abstract composition of cobalt blue water shimmering in the afternoon sun.
