Michael Winsor’s powerful images of Newfoundland and Labrador are a result of his deep connection with, and love for, the province’s culture and many natural wonders. As he sees it, “every cove, inlet, tickle, island, bay, peninsula, point or arm is more beautiful than the next.” Born in Pool’s Island, Bonavista Bay, Michael has had an interest in photography – or, more specifically, Newfoundland and Labrador imagery – since his childhood.
Michael explains that, "sometimes life as seen through a camera lens can bring people together over a shared love of a place." I never really saw Newfoundland until I placed the camera in my hand. Alone at 1:30 am when the golden crescent moon rises over the mirror-like ocean, when you can see the fishermen’s punts and wharfs right side-up or upside-down, it leaves you speechless, and you wonder why everyone is not here to see it with you. “Then I try to capture that moment in time to share with other Newfoundlanders at home or away that truly appreciate our way of life."
