Current Issue of Orion Magazine: Not to be missed!

Kudos once again to the creative team at Orion (subtitled “Nature/Culture/Peace”), the magazine of the Orion Society. The March/April issue features portfolios of new works by Robert and Shana Parke Harrison and Chris Jordan, as well as selections of beautiful work about trees by Thomas Dunklin and Tanya Marcuse.
The selection of imagery, quality of design and overall production values of this publication are not to be missed.
