  • Robert Edwards Holloway (1850-1904) arrived in Newfoundland, from England, in June 1874 to assume the duties of Principal at the Wesleyan Academy in St. John’s. What was to be a four-year position lasted three decades; the rest of his life. An interest in science informed his initial pursuit of photography, as he was curious about the related chemical processes. During summers, he would travel across Newfoundland and capture images on glass-plate negatives. Numbering in the hundreds, these images would form the basis of Through Newfoundland with the Camera, published posthumously in 1905.
