Candace Cochrane first came to Newfoundland in 1967 to work in a children’s summer recreation program run by the Quebec-Labrador Foundation (QLF) on the Northern Peninsula. The landscape and its people inspired her to develop her photography skills in order to document her experience of outport life. Since then, she has divided her time between working as a photojournalist, a teacher of photography, and a cultural heritage program director for QLF. Her photographs have appeared in numerous magazines and books in Canada and the US. Some of the photographs from this book are collected in the National Archives of Canada. In 1985, she collaborated with Nain, Labrador, photographer Levi Nochasak to document aboriginal lifeways for the Labrador school curriculum. That experience led her back to Harvard Graduate School of Education, where she researched aboriginal uses of visual imagery for teaching and learning history to earn her doctorate in education. For part of each year, Cochrane lives and works out of her house on the Northern Peninsula, where she first fell in love with the province of Newfoundland and Labrador.
