Artist's Description

The town of St. Pierre is the largest settlement on the islands of St. Pierre and Miquelon, a group of islands off the south coast of Newfoundland, Canada, in the North Atlantic Ocean. Since around 1536 they have been a fishing community and have always, and to this day, remained a department of France.
This photo was taken from a hill behind the town, with visibility limited by the Atlantic fog. The long breakwater protects the harbour from Atlantic gales. To anyone who has visited the small fishing towns of France, coming to St. Pierre would seem very familiar.

Taken in the summer of 1966
Exakta Varex 35mm. SLR, F2 50mm. Biotar lens

Scanned in 2004 with a Canoscan 4000US scanner
