Twill­ingate’s dig­i­tal arts fes­ti­val show­cases work of pho­tog

The Central Voice - - News -

Un­scripted Twill­ingate Dig­i­tal Arts Fes­ti­val had its fourth run Sept. 20-23.

The fes­ti­val held a va­ri­ety of ac­tiv­i­ties, in­clud­ing live mu­sic, a kitchen party, dig­i­tal arts work­shops, a root cel­lar race and an art gallery fea­tur­ing the work of pho­tog­ra­phers across cen­tral New­found­land and be­yond. Spe­cial guest artist Robyn Flan­ni­gan also dis­played her work and de­liv­ered a talk at the fes­ti­val.


Bruce Humphries of Gander ini­tially took an in­ter­est in pho­tog­ra­phy through work­ing in forestry. The job brought him to many high al­ti­tudes and un­seen places, so he de­cided to doc­u­ment on cam­era. He’s since car­ried the craft into many scenic im­ages of early morn­ings across New­found­land and Labrador. One of his most pop­u­lar pho­tos is a boat that was turned over in William’s Har­bour at the an­nounce­ment of the mora­to­rium, and has not been flipped back since.


Self-taught pho­tog­ra­pher Char­maine Young did her first shoot­ing gig in sixth grade, when asked to take pho­tos around Twill­ingate. The job turned sour when she went to de­velop the pho­to­graphs and found the cam­era was bro­ken. But it did not pre­vent her from pur­su­ing pho­tog­ra­phy fur­ther, and since 2006 pho­tog­ra­phy been her main fo­cus. Young says she takes most of her in­spi­ra­tion from the Twill­ingate skies.
