To me this photograph is, essentially, a portrait of a gentle
man. It was taken while touring the eastern part of Newfoundland
during peak blueberry season a time when it seems nearly
every farmhouse has a Blueberries for Sale sign.
didnt get out of my car with the intention of taking a portrait,
but when this man returned with my blueberries he struck me somehow,
and I knew I needed to photograph him. I especially liked the
layers of his clothing, and the colour of his hat and shirt, but
mostly I wanted to capture his gentle nature, and the pride he
obviously took in his work and his home region.
