CBC recently published an article about Nick Hawkins and his 100 Wild Islands photography project. CBC writes,
Nick Hawkins is a photojournalist specializing in natural history, science and conservation issues, and has worked all over the world. He recently got the chance to visit a dozen or so of the islands and is collaborating on a project with Canadian Geographic and Dalhousie University marine biologist Boris Worm.
Many people are surprised to learn there are Caribbean-like vistas here in the Maritimes. “You get responses like, ‘Wow, you know I never thought that that was here in Nova Scotia,'” Hawkins said.
“I think that’s when I feel like I’ve really done my job as a photographer, when they get to see something or experience something that perhaps has been in their backyard this entire time and they’re just seeing it for the first time now.”
