Artist's Description

Two fishermen set out to fish in the North Atlantic from the Islands of St. Pierre and Miquelon.Their dory is the same as used by all of the inshore and also offshore fishermen on the fishing grounds of the eastern seaboard. These islands, off the south coast of Newfoundland, are an actual department of France, with a life style much the same as they would have in Europe. This photo was taken from the deck of a ship heading for Newfoundland, in the summer of 1966.

The camera was a 35mm. Exakta Varex with a 50mm. Biotar lens, and using high speed Ektachrome film. The slide was scanned at 4000bpi in 2004, using a Canoscan 4000US scanner.
