From Thoreau to Annie Dillard, Cape Cod has long been held in a place of special affection and in these pages, photographer Don Krohn turns his attention to the place he loves best and calls home. Representing all fifteen of the Cape’s towns, this sequence of over 100 color photographs captures the diversity, the range, the landscape, the inhabitant, and the waters of this fugitive terminal moraine. Cape-lovers are guaranteed to discover something new, while strangers will be seduced into yearning for a visit to this varied and scenic peninsula. Loosely chronicling the arc of a summer day, and ranging from formal nature studies to breezy journalistic images, these photographs offer a rich visual immersion into a Cape Cod idyll.
An introduction by acclaimed author Geraldine Brooks and Krohn’s afterword highlight 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, they exist as the perfect complements to the diverse array of images presented in this edition.
