I’M SO HONORED to read this wonderful article in the MV Times. Karla Araujo heard about our new 6-month mentorship, and asked to write a story.

I’M SO PLEASED to be Yankee Magazine‘s “featured photographer” for the month of July. The best part is a slideshow on Yankee’s site, with images from my newest book, To the Harbor Light.

MV Times close-up

Squibnocket II 2004

THE MARTHA’S VINEYARD TIMES published this great feature article, in which I discuss the technique behind my series of abstracted seascapes.

It’s a more creative approach, where I use my camera like a paintbrush to capture the essence of a scene, distilling it down to the feeling of being there. By panning as I shoot, I minimize the extraneous details of what’s there, ending up with a shot that evokes a more sensual nature of the place.

IF YOU HAVEN’T PICKED UP Lew French’s book Stone by Design (with my photographs of his stonework), you should. Until then, Yankee Magazine has you covered with this slideshow of images from the book. Lew’s work is simply magical.

Alison in the Smith Alumnae Quarterly


Alison graduated from Smith College in 1975, came to the Vineyard for the summer, and never left. If you were to name the two most important places in Alison’s life, it’d be Smith, and Martha’s Vineyard. Here is a short article about Alison in the Smith Alumnae Quarterly that puts both places together, and offers a little perspective on her journey since college.

Favorite (humbling) quote:

“Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer Stan Grossfeld has said that ‘she is to the Vineyard what Georgia O’Keeffe is to the American Southwest.’ ”

An artist residency

IN THE FALL of 2005, I spent two weeks as an “artist in residence” at a primitive shack in the Cape Cod dunes.
