Through March 2, the National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa is presenting Paul-Émile Miot: Early Photographs of Newfoundland. A French naval officer aboard the Ardent, Paul-Émile Miot travelled extensively. During these voyages in 1857 and after, he made photographs of the waters and land around Newfoundland and Labrador. These images were useful for their practical information, and they offer a look at the region’s past.
