Click to preview NEWFOUNDLAND - an island with a difference photo book

This selection of images made in the still relatively unspoiled island Newfoundland shows the wide range of subjects that attracted me during a five-week long tour around this incredibly varied land in 1993. Though many of these pictures depict a cold, unwelcome view of coastlines and scattered ice-floes, the “Newfies”, (Newfoundlander's names for themselves) are the complete opposite; their warm friendly hospitality made this journey all the more memorable.
Newfoundland is a Treasure Island with a difference, though there are certainly enough tales of sea-faring romance to equal R. L. Stevenson's famous storybook. Natural treasures abound in a land shaped by glaciers that left deep land-locked fjords and lakes or ponds with a mountain backdrop. The cliffs at Cape St Mary's provide the second largest nesting site for Gannets in North America, while at Witless Bay, there are tens of thousands of Puffins, Storm Petrels and Kittiwakes to spot...

About the Author

George E. Todd
GeorgeTodd Hochstadt, Bavaria, Germany

Born in 1925 in Grimsby, England I soon showed artistic aptitude and won a scholarship to study graphic design – studies disrupted by the war, and service in Royal Air Force. After the war I worked on missiles and the Skylark research rocket. In 1972 I was offered a job in the German Aerospace Research Organization, the NASA of Germany. The change of life-style in Bavaria triggered me to take photography seriously, making close-ups of Alpine flowers for my wife. This developed into a fascination for detail and still life, as well as landscapes, making images featured in my exhibitions and several books. We made many journeys around the Greek islands, France, Italy, Spain & Portugal, shooting literally acres of film. I have often said that if a motif presents itself suddenly ‘out of the blue’, I see it intuitively as a graphic image or some abstract design – a reaction difficult to describe and almost impossible to teach others. I photograph anything that stands or moves, or moves me.
