Something about a print. Something about the feeling of a photograph that isn’t just equatable to zeros and ones. Something about a negative. Something about the scanned in grain, dirt, and dust. Film is certainly annoying. It isn’t for the impatient. I’m impatient. Sometimes I hate it. Sometimes. Other times, I find a negative. The […]
So Long Friend: Death of a Sony DSC-W100
This may seem a repost. Might seem a bit of dejavu. It feels that way for me too. You know when you pull off a band aid or jump into a cold pool? Better to do it in one shot. It hurts less. This brings me to the death of a friend: my Sony DSC-W100. […]

Hard not to miss a place like this. I love where I am and what I’m doing. I love being in Korea. I love the bustle. I love the hustle. Everything about this place screams at me to stay. And I will.
A shitty, rainy day in Seoul. Still reminded of home with the rain sliding across the cafe window. I don’t often miss home, not really. That said, sometimes I feel like Newfoundland is a kind of oasis for Newfoundlanders. A trip back is needed every so often to cleanse the mind. The Soul.
Finally after a couple of days in front of my computer I’ve managed to get my two most recent projects here. Being shit at this kind of thing it took a lot longer than I expected, and it’s still a work in progress but it is a start. For those looking for some clarification not […]
After taking a long time to think about a small, but emotional project I did this summer it is finally live on my portfolio website. No words, just 13 photos from one of the most important trips I’ve taken in my life. The essay is here: http://www.jtwhitephotography.com/projects-newfoundland
Yesterday, I was going through negatives I hadn’t yet scanned. The first shot on one roll was this one. I hadn’t noticed it before, because it was the only photo I took on my trip home with this camera. A Leica M5, someone had given me months before I’m not sure why this was the […]
Newfoundland: Coming Soon
My project, based on my trip back to Newfoundland this summer is almost ready for print. Hard to go through these photos, in fact. A beautiful place, my homeland. The land may very well be cold, the sea breeze bristling the senses of even the toughest man. The people, however hearty they may be are […]
Port au Port, Newfoundland, Canada. Admittedly, I don’t know much about this topic. I don’t know enough much of what goes on in my home province anymore. I see the posts. When I say ‘see’ I mean I scroll through them. Sad, really. After reading a recent article on the matter, I’ve realized it’s something […]
“I made a decision that to me, photography had to be something that I could feel. I could feel in my stomach. I could not take pictures that were not connected to my own inner life.” – Jacob Aue Sobol Coming up to my last couple of days on the island. Couldn’t imagine a better […]
I won’t be posting much for the immediate future. Probably not at all. Coming back to Newfoundland has hit me hard in a lot of ways. The memories. The place. The people. I will shoot and live. A project of sorts.
