Lorna Crozier and Ian McAllister
It’s not everyone who can be poetic about a rake, or a vacuum cleaner, or a coffee pot. But Governor General’s Award-winning poet Lorna Crozier did just that in her book of meditative prose, The Book of Marvels: A Compendium of Everyday Things. She can also write sensitively and sensually about our precious environment and its inhabitants, and that is why award-winning wildlife photographer and environmental advocate Ian McAllister asked her to collaborate on a book. The result of their partnership is The Wild in You: Voices from the Forest and the Sea. The writer’s part and the photographer’s part are exquisite and each could easily stand alone: the sum of their parts is stunning.
