Photographer's Note

Percé (2006 Population 3,419) is a small village near the tip of the Gaspé Peninsula in Quebec. As a municipality, it is 432.39 square km in area. It has a long history of being an important seasonal fishing centre under the French. In the 18th century, the area became the most important fishing location on the Gaspé Peninsula[citation needed] for the European settlers after Charles Robin, a native of Jersey, began his fishing establishment. Old buildings serving as infrastructure for the Charles Robin Company can still be seen; however, today the area is mainly a tourist location particularly well-known for the attractions of Percé Rock and Bonaventure Island.
