Postcards from Fogo Island

fogo-island-ducemin-2

If you’ve been following my Instagram feed, you’ll have seen these, for which I apologize. We’re staying for a couple nights at the Fogo Island Inn, a place of astonishing beauty and hospitality – both the Inn and the island itself, on which we keep extending our stay. It’s an inspiring place for a number of reasons, not the least being the gift this Inn has been to the island itself. For me it is also a place for my muse to dig in, surrounded by rocks and waves and early mornings driving around the little island with my cup of coffee and my camera. Yesterday I saw my first caribou on my morning drive, this morning two more. There’s a feeling of Iceland here, as Canadian as it is, and there’s a similar feeling of vast space and rugged, mangy, elegance that I adore.  The food is amazing and the people are warm and beautiful. It’s one of those places I might never leave, if not in body then certainly in spirit. Right now the windows are open in my room and I can hear nothing but surf, and it’s calling me to grab the camera and head to the shore. As usual I can’t escape the feeling that none of the photographs I’m making are worth anything, but the long hours of exploring, seeing what there is to be seen, are worth more than the photographs could ever be.

MindShift Filter Hive

Hello from the windy and rainy coast of Newfoundland where we’re enjoying the fallout from tropical storm Cristobal! A few months ago I starting looking for a better way to deal with my 100mm Lee / Singh Ray filters and the various things I end up cramming into my pockets – spare batteries, filter holder, […]

Postcards from Newfoundland

We’re 9,000Km, and 25 days, into this trip and I’m beginning to find a rhythm, learning to relax and see the place as it seems to want to reveal itself. I’ve photographed almost the whole trip so far on my iPhone, enjoying the simplicity and the constraints of  the square frame I’ve chosen, in part […]

Postcards from Labrador

After almost 7800km across this vast country, we arrived on the coast of Labrador a couple hours ago, to fog. The last couple hundred kilometers like so many before them, along bone-jarring rutted roads flanked with pine trees that seem at once both arthritic and anemic. The roads just seemed to go on and on, […]

PHOTOGRAPH, Issue 8

When I dreamed up this magazine, bouncing around Mongolia’s Gobi desert, two years ago, it was a big, crazy, What If. Now, with Issue 8, we’re celebrating two years with another beautiful issue, beginning with the work of my friend Ami Vitale, an exceptional storyteller and National Geographic photographer. We’re also featuring the fine art […]
