Twillingate’s digital arts festival showcases work of photog
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.
