Although I live on the densely populated Isle of Manhattan, I'm drawn to photographing in remote, watery places, where people must have some understanding of wind and tide and weather in order to go about their daily lives. In this series of photographs of the unbridged Cranberry Isles in Maine, I see my fascination with the vibrant colors of this sometimes barren-seeming place, and the interdependence of people in island communities. 

I’m grateful to the wonderful Heliker-LaHotan Foundation for the opportunity to spend time photographing and living on Great Cranberry Island.
