On a visit to one of Cape Cod’s remote Provincetown dune shacks, photographer Don Krohn turns his attention to the place he calls home. With each of the Cape’s fifteen towns represented in this series of over 100 color photographs, Cape-lovers will surely discover something new, along with the familiar, while strangers will quickly find themselves converts, fiending for a visit to this varied and scenic peninsula. Very loosely chronicling the arc of a summer day, the illustrations – ranging from formal nature studies to breezy journalistic images – offer a rich visual immersion into a Cape Cod idyll.
Krohn’s introduction highlights the personal connection that flourishes when one takes the time to truly explore one’s surroundings. Ranging in tone from carefree to serious, ethereal to everlasting, like the region he captures in his photographs, it exists as the perfect complement to the diverse array of images presented in this edition.
