Every year since 1994, Waterous & Co., now Scotia Waterous, has produced a book of photography focusing on the work of a single photographer. Louise Abbott's portfolio on French-speaking Newfoundlanders was showcased in the third volume, published in 1996.

In sponsoring the photographic book series, Scotia Waterous has provided important support to the careers of serious photographers from around the world. The books, exquisitely printed and elegantly designed, are now collectors’ items and a photographic legacy. They are works of art in themselves and reside in prestigious collections around the world.

 The year 2013 marked Scotia Waterous’ twentieth consecutive year of commitment to the photographic arts. This year’s book, Legacy: Twenty Years of Global Black-and-White Photography, features a collection of photographs from the past nineteen bookstwo images from each photographer. 

Craig Richards, the curator of the Whyte Museum of the Canadian Rockies in Banff, also mounted an exhibition, "The Photographers of Scotia Waterous," which  includes each of the photographer’s two photographs as well as two recent works.  The vernissage was held on February 1, 2014, and the show will run until March 30, 2014.

2013 marked the fortieth year of Louise Abbott's career in photojournalism! To commemorate this anniversary, she decided to present images from past and present portfolios from time to time. This image was taken near Sentry Island in Hudson Bay in August of 2013. She used a Sony SLT A99 with a 70-400 lens.

A Photo Workshop in Arviat

E-mail Print PDF

In late August, Louise Abbott and Niels Jensen were invited to give a photo workshop for students in Arviat, on the west coast of Hudson Bay. Thanks to the generosity of Sony Canada, we were able to buy four digital cameras to donate to Arctic College, which hosted the workshop.The students went out with remarkable energy and enthusiasm and produced photo essays on different aspects of life in Arviat. We have stayed in touch with one of the workshop organizers and have learned that the students mounted an exhibition of their work at the community hall at the end of August and will remount the show at the local high school later this fall.
