Finding Newfoundland – by Curtis Jones

Growing up in Newfoundland I took for granted the natural beauty and wonder of my every day. Surrounded by a culture of storytelling born from landscapes that inspired fable and lore, I left home in my early twenties hoping to create my own stories of adventure. After more than a decade of exploring every corner of this spinning globe I now find myself longing to document and share the beauty of my own province and its people. This talk will be a tribute to those spaces, faces and places that I had to leave to find again.

A Picture is Worth A Thousand Words – by Kas Stone

We all know the expression “a picture is worth a thousand words.” Words and images are two different ways of telling stories and expressing our feelings about a subject. One appeals visually, the other linguistically, to different areas of our brains to get their message across. However when words and images are used effectively together – pairing a compelling photograph with a clever title or interesting backstory – their impact can be truly inspiring.

In this thought-provoking presentation, photographer and author Kas Stone explores the controversial connection between words and images. She will also offer some tips and exercises to help you create effective titles for your images.
