The French Shore by Louise Abbott
The French Shore was published in 1996 as a limited edition of 500 hardcover copies, each signed by the author. It features an introduction by E. Annie Proulx. Upon publication, the book was highly commended for its stunning photographic depictions of rural Newfoundland. The French Shore is a sensitive photographic tribute to the little-known French Newfoundlanders, a cultural minority who continue to speak the language of their forefathers and pursue a lifestyle in rhythm with the land, the sea, and the seasons.
