Avalon Peninsula Contemplation

Roger Stermann

July 2 - July 30, 2016
Opening Reception: Friday, July 8 – 7-10 pm

This photo series is about the majesty of where land meets sea on the very east coast of Canada. I imagine that the raw beauty of Newfoundland remains similar to the first human sighting, and what existed for millennia before. The geomorphology of the Avalon Peninsula is a visual textbook of an epoch of time. For me, landscape photography is like collecting exceptional stories. This series suggests many possible stories. Each image in the series stopped me in my tracks, and evoked in me a feeling of mystery or peace or simplicity or awe. They are still representations of timeless beauty. In seeming unity with the land, the pervasive atmosphere of the culture seems to be unaffected, rooted-to-the-earth, with an air of innocence and joy. This pictorial journey was a pleasure to have enjoyed, and to share with you.
