My Nantucket brings Hall’s images together for the first time, conveying a memorable portrait and a unique state of mind that is Nantucket Island.
Many have photographed Nantucket, but Beverly Hall has captured its spirit. She sees with her heart and conveys the feeling, not just the likeness, of the island - be in a foggy dirt road or a tangle of rope. This collection of her earliest island images reveals her ability to capture the magic in an oil slick, the majesty in a fresh-caught fish, the organic beauty of old pilings, the arched seagull on the wharf... These and other signature photographs in this book have represented the island for decades.
