    Trained as an architect at MIT, Samuel Chamberlain discovered a talent for art resulting in an outstanding body of pioneering photographic work recording the fast-evolving yet eternal face of Old Cape Cod from its colonial architecture to its quaint towns and pristine ocean vistas. Shot in 1936 and 1952, these stunning, large format images reveal through line, shadow, brightness, and composition the subtle beauty of this special habitat.

    Anyone interested in visiting this show, let me know and I'll buy you a Guiness at the local pub.
