Warren Gordon: Cape Breton, Reflections

Cape Breton photographer Warren Gordon has been documenting lives and events in the Cape Breton community for nearly 50 years and is showing no signs of retirement.
Gordon has provided professional photographic services to graduates, families, the business community, and wedding parties from his Sydney studios throughout that time.
Most recently, Gordon has released a new book called Cape Breton, Reflections.
“I saw the concept of a ‘book in a bag’ first in my travels to Iceland. Until that time, I thought I had completed my last book project. I’ve done about 15 books in my career and sold some 200,000 copies including the previous book which I considered my ‘greatest hits.’ However, Reflections is about 95 per cent new work as well and I think it covers every nook and cranny of Cape Breton. I’m glad to have done it because I think if I hadn’t done another book, some of these images would never have seen the light of day,” Gordon told The Oran this week.
