These photos are of the Vimy Memorial, Canada’s monument to the 60,000 Canadian soldiers who gave their lives in France and to all those who served in World War I. The memorial sits on Vimy Ridge which Canadian soldiers captured at great cost. The scale of the memorial is amazing. Two towers of white limestone, […]
These photographs are from the Bretteville-sur-Laize Canadian War Cemetery at Cintheaux in Normandy, France. In 2015 I attended a memorial ceremony here in honour of the Canadians who fought and died during the Battle of Normandy. The first two photos show the many attendees including a few visiting dignitaries. If you look in the background […]
In 2015, I went to France on a World War I & II history tour. We visited many of the Canadian, British and American battelfields in Normandy. These photos were taken at Pointe du Hoc, which is the highlest point of land between Utah Beach to the west and Omaha Beach to the east. On […]
I shot these photos in 2015 while on a tour of Canadian World War II battlefields in France. These are from Arromanches in Normandy. Arromanches is the location of Gold Beach where the British landed on D-Day and built a Mulberry harbour out of huge concrete caissons, many of which can still be seen off […]
It’s sad to think about the destruction and loss of history caused by the Notre Dame fire. I was fortunate enough to have visited Notre Dame a few years back and snap some photos. I even got to go inside but I didn’t really see much. There were too many tourists and since it was […]
These are from the Juno Beach Centre in Courseulles-sur-Mer, France. The statue is called Remembrance and Renewal and is a memorial to the Canadian soldiers who stormed Juno Beach on D-Day and fought in World War II.
I was fortunate enough to spend a night at the Villa Lara Hotel in Bayeux, France. These photos of my room were shot on Kodak Portra 160.
These are from Honfleur, France. They were shot using Orwo NP7 400 from Labeauratoire. Unfortunately, this film needed more exposure. As you can see, it turned out rather dark and excessively grainy.
These views of Paris were shot from the top of the Arc de Triomphe during the summer of 2015.
These were shot in Courseulles-sur-Mer, Normandy, France last summer on my battlefields tour sponsored by the Juno Beach Centre Museum. Courseulles-sur-Mer is beautiful and I took a lot of photos while I was there. The last shot is of the statue entitled Remembrance and Renewal as seen reflected in the glass of the Juno Beach […]
These were all shot with my Canon Canonet QL17 Giii. I love this little camera and had a great time capturing these images in Honfleur, France. I spent only an evening here during my trip to Normandy, but it was awesome. I met a lot of friendly people, drank some amazing Calvados brandy, and generally […]
These were shot at Juno Beach in Courseulles-sur-Mer, Normandy, France last summer using Adox Color Implosion film. Juno Beach is the codename for the beach that the Canadians stormed on D-Day and it is also home to the Juno Beach Centre, a museum dedicated to those Canadians that fought and lost their lives in WWII. […]
These were shot during my trip to Normandy, France in August. They are from the Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial at Omaha Beach. Omaha Beach saw some of the bloodiest fighting on D-Day and the battle and cemetery are both featured in the movie Saving Private Ryan. These were shot using FPP RetroChrome 160 film […]
I came across this really cool bicycle in Arromanches-les-Bains when I was in France this summer. Arromanches is where the British built a Mulberry harbour after D-Day in World War II. The remnants of the Mulberry harbour can still be seen today. I love rescale film and the red, orange and gold tones you can […]
