Newfoundland is a place that simply can never be caught, but that has not stopped Ray Mackey from chasing her. He is in the office when he is travelling the back roads and remote coves and villages of the province. His eye for beauty imbues each photograph with a quality not easily given over to words. This remarkable collection does justice to one of the world's most unique landscapes.
From Fogo to St. John's to St Lunaire-Griquet and towns and villages up and down the coast, Mackey catches glimpses of this magnificent island like no photographer has caught her before. Newfoundland is in Ray Mackey's blood, and Chasing Newfoundland is his love letter to the province. Come along and chase Newfoundland with him.
Windswept mountains and rolling hills. Sun bleached houses and fishing stages. Atlantic-sculpted icebergs and rugged shores. Wild flowers and breaching whales. Sunsets inventing new colours through night's arrival. Newfoundland in all her beauty. Ray Mackay's mastery of light and his dedicated patience in creating a book of perfect Newfoundland moments in stunning photographs, makes Chasing Newfoundland my top book recommendation to have and to gift.

Ray Mackey is blessed with a unique ability to not only capture the incredible beauty of Newfoundland, but also to convey the mood so vividly that we can feel the wind and hear the sea.
