Fogo Island has had to reinvent itself after the collapse of the cod fishing industry. It is now mostly known for the modern architecture around the island, with the main feature being the Fogo Island Inn. I came across this spot on a trip around Newfoundland in the spring of 2018 and decided to make a long exposure photograph of the iconic hotel, leaving my camera shutter open for just over two minutes. Even though I captured some images during sunset as well, I feel that this one during the blue hour represented the location best, with the cold blue light contrasting with the warm light emanating from the hotel.
This is a signed 11”x14”print, limited to an edition of 25. Mounted and set behind a bright white mat, it will arrive ready to place in the 16”x20” frame of your choosing.
For this image, I use an archival baryta semigloss fine art paper printed with professional Canon ink. After trying over a dozen paper stocks with various images, I’ve found that this is my favorite for most photos, especially those with prominent dark tones. It offers rich blacks, excellent contrast and sharpness, and subtle tonal transitions. In general, photos printed on this paper have a bit of a three-dimensional “pop” that I haven’t been able to replicate with any other options. A lot of times when we switch from seeing an image on a backlit LCD screen to one printed on paper, the latter can appear rather flat and underwhelming. I actually find the opposite in this case and I’m excited for you to see just how great it can look in-person.
