Last Lumberjack to Use a Horse-Drawn Carriage – Bathurst, New Brunswick
Remi Guitard, Last Lumberjack to Use a Horse-Drawn Carriage, Bathurst, New Brunswick, February 2012
In this area of New Brunswick, Remi Guitard is apparently the last person cutting wood in the tradition of his ancestors, using a horse-drawn carriage (although he does use a chainsaw). Acadians are descendants of French settlers and have been in Canada for over 400 years. I actually took this photo for an exhibition I was commissioned to work on by The Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21 in Halifax.
Periodically, photographers take over the Maclean’s Instagram account. Here’s the story behind Oh Canada!, a collection curated by Naomi Harris.
This is Naomi Harris (@mapledipped) taking over the Maclean’s Instagram account. I’m constantly doing personal work, like this project ‘Oh Canada!’ which is currently part of the Scotiabank CONTACT Festival (@contactphoto). I took a road trip across the country during the summer of 2011 and photographed a variety of Canadians I met along the way.
