Hauntingly beautiful photographs by Lisa Tyson Ennis document an ancient coastal way of life which is fast becoming extinct. Included are photographs of remote fishing villages in Newfoundland accessible only by boat. Lisa Tyson Ennis works solely with historical processes: large and medium format cameras, black and white film, handmade toners, and oil paints. Each image is hand printed and painted with light in a traditional wet darkroom. Ennis’s work is in the collections of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, The Tides Institute, the Delaware Art Museum, and the Portland Museum of Art.
