Rock in a Windswept Sea
A photographic Journey in Newfoundland and Labrador
de ERNST KUCKLICH
The people of Newfoundland call their island The Rock. This is an apt description because Newfoundland consists of rock, and there is virtually no soil.
Sitting out there beyond the edges of our continent, this rock is battered relentlessly by the North Atlantic, one of the fiercest oceans on earth.
But this rock is even older than the Atlantic Ocean itself.
The images that I present in this book express my vision of the island and the sea surrounding it. I wanted to create images that give an impression of the fundamental elements of this island: Wind, Sea, Rock.
I hope that Newfoundland, this Rock in a Windswept Sea, speaks through my images and lets the viewer get a taste of this stark and beautiful place.
I am a photographer based in Vancouver, BC, Canada. My latest book ARCTIC PASSAGE describes - in photos and words - an expedition in the Canadian High Arctic and West Greenland aboard the expedition ship Sea Adventurer in the summer of 2013.
