Between Two Islands: Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket Diptychs

I’ve started a new project pairing pinhole photographs from the twin islands of Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket. I grew up spending a few weeks every summer on Nantucket and now live on the other island. Nantucket is filled with nostalgia for me, while everything on Martha’s Vineyard still feels weird and new.

Something to practice and strive towards:

“Once you see a pair like this, you miss it. It’s only really a sentence.” – Dorothea Lange from Dorothea Lange: Grab a Hunk of Lightning

Steward Health Care for Minder

I had the pleasure and challenge this summer to create new photography for the entirety of Steward Health Care, with a focus on quality of care. We worked with real doctors, nurses, and patients during their real work days to capture and emphasize what was unique about the 10 Steward hospitals around Eastern Massachusetts. I learned a lot about hospitals and was very thankful for everyone involved for letting us into their jobs and lives. The images were used for large and small billboards, print ads in the Boston Globe and other local papers, subways stations, bus stations, web ads, and put up around the hospitals. Minder managed the photography production for Boathouse Group.

Sunrise Over the Nantucket Moors

I like to think of the Nantucket Moors as the Serengeti of America and have been photographing there for years. I posted another selection of photos from there last year at the same time.

Tiny Kitchens for Edible Vineyard Magazine

Edible Vineyard was the first magazine I contacted when I moved to Martha’s Vineyard. It’s printed on amazing paper and heavily features big photos and long photo essays. It was great to work with their photo editor Elizabeth Cecil(who is also an amazing photographer) and go around town to meet people with small kitchens. I visited campsites, a boat, tiny houses, shacks, and an airstream trailer.

Shack life is a really special part of Martha’s Vineyard and one of the first things I wanted to photograph on the island anyway so this story was a nice combination of assignment work and personal vision. Because of the high real estate prices on the island people are forced to figure out alternative and semi-legal living situations so that they can live where they want.

You can read the full story online or pick up a copy for free basically anywhere on Martha’s Vineyard.
