Photographer's Note

This photograph was taken inside a simple church constructed for the series “Random Passage”. It shows the simple end to a life of rigid toil. In earlier times, many children were born with nothing and fished all their lives while being in constant debt to a rich fishing merchant. Most died owing money.
The small communities they lived in had no nurse, doctor or medical services. If one got sick, they had to rely on home remedies. Unfortunately if the remedies did not work they would end up here. It is a life not for the weak of heart. With plenty of fish, they would be able to buy food from the fishing merchant. But without an abundance of fish, hungry was a constant companion.
If you ever get the opportunity to see “Random Passage” Please do because it will give you a realistic appreciation of early life in a small Newfoundland community.

This photograph was adjusted with the levels and sharpened in the lab color.
