DUNE SHACKS OF PROVINCETOWN: Photographs by Jane Paradise
Galatea Fine Art 2017 exhibition catalogue
On the wild back shore of Provincetown, Massachusetts, writers, artists, and families made summer homes in the early 1900s. Affectionately called the dune shacks, some were originally life-saving huts constructed in the late 1890’s but most were built in the 1920s and 1930s out of debris and ship wrecked ruins.
A cluster of these original shacks exist today — some restored, some bandaged, some dilapidated — all loved. Each shack is unique with its own personality and its own name.
