Overview

Bill Mason: Wilderness Artist is the story of Canada's most famous canoeing artist. The camera lens and the pallet knife were his instruments. The wild places were his inspiration. Bill's first film for the National Film Board of Canada, Paddle to the Sea, won 11 awards and was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Short Film in 1968. His work was nominated again in 1970 in the same category for his documentary Blake. By the mid-1970s Bill had become one of Canada's most successful documentary filmmakers. Bill Mason: Wilderness Artist examines Bill's entire artistic career-his photography, cartoons, books and films. Created with the full cooperation of the Mason family, this book provides insight into a man driven by a passion for nature.
