Album Rock is the account of writer Matthew Hollett’s research and road trip to isolated Ship Cove, on Newfoundland’s Northern Peninsula to solve a mystery—the source of a captivating photograph. It is also about the photographer, Paul-Émile Miot, a French naval officer who made some of the earliest photos of Newfoundland in the 1850s. Hollett touches on connection to place, the mysteries of early photography, and the impact of colonialism on how we see and understand landscape.
