Description

In over 60 handmade, black-and-white photographs, renowned film photographer Michael Kahn renders Martha’s Vineyard beachscapes in exquisite detail. Produced in his darkroom, these masterful, curated images depict the diversity and intense beauty of this enchanting island. Scenes of Edgartown, South Beach, Zack's Cliffs, and other locations are interspersed with inspirational quotes and poetry. The warm, tritone-printed images represent the artist's 22 years of work using a 1950s camera to capture the area's sculpted beaches on traditional film, and producing the images as luminous silver gelatin prints.
