Ned Pratt is a photographer from Newfoundland where he currently lives and works. His works focus on the rugged landscape of Newfoundland and its impact on his subjects, which serve as the foundation for his striking minimalist photographs. He holds the 2017 Large Year Award from Visual Artists Newfoundland and Labrador for Excellence in the Visual Arts. Pratt’s works can be found in many prominent public and private collections across Canada, the United States, Europe, and Australia.

This work by Ned Pratt, along with Crowley’s Poperty, were part of Place, the Nicholas Metivier Gallery’s most recent exhibition of photographs by the artist. Similar to Fog Horn Revisited, the main focus of this work is a shed with the majority of the composition taken up by the landscape. The field takes the place of the ocean, and you get the sense that no matter where the structure is, it will be beaten by the elements. Location: Trinity Bay Area (Northwest of the Avalon Peninsula), Newfoundland
A fun tidbit – this is the only time Pratt can remember photographing a green shed.
