A fisherman

It looks like I might be going to Fogo Islands in February and to Change Islands in March. Hopefully, this is going to be a chance to make some photographs.

In the meantime, check out Joachim Ladefoget’s work on Newfoundland cod fishery as published in iPad-only magazine Once Magazine.

The photo was made last March in Joe Batt’s Arm on Fogo Island.

Exhibit announcements

Developed first few rolls from Croatia. Pretty excited to see what’s on them. While they are drying, you get a photo from Fogo Island.

A couple of announcements. I have an exhibit scheduled for October in St. John’s, NL during the North Atlantic Forum conference and possibly another one in Saint John, NB in February. I will also be presenting a paper at the October conference. All of that, of course, providing that I find the money to make prints and frame them.

Photo links

I should be preparing my presentation for tomorrow’s workshop in Gander, but I have no inspiration, therefore, here is a post full of photo links…

Check out Sebastião Salgado’s new work. Monumental, as always. Here is an interview with Salgado in New York Magazine.

Thanks to kottke.org for a link to this fascinating set of historical photographs featuring well known figures in interesting and, occasionally, unusual places or company.

Goethe Institut has an exhibit of new German photography – not my cup of tea, but some of you might find it interesting.

And here is Part 1 of an older documentary about Sebastião Salgado and his work on workers. (Parts 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6)

[Old Blog] Puncheon Cove

Eric gave us a ride to his old community of Puncheon Cove on Change Islands. The community does not exist any more, although somebody is trying to rebuild the lone standing house hidden in this sheltered cove. The families who used to live there still visit often and the kids swim in the cove in the summer. Most of the families now live in the main settlement on Change Islands along the main tickle. It’s quite remarkable to see how much landscape of those isles has changed in a very short period of time. There used to be a number of small fishing communities on Change Islands. Some of them were even large enough for a small school. The communities often had two parts – houses near the water were used during the summer months and houses in the interior, protected by the woods, were used in winter.
