Part of our first annual print project in collaboration with local Cape Cod artists to support their work and raise funds for Provincetown Arts, this set includes a signed hardcover copy of Provincetown photographer Jane Paradise’s newly-released book Dune Shacks of Provincetown (Schiffer, December 6, 2022) and an unframed, limited edition 7 x 5″ archival pigment print of Margo Gelb Moon (2011) (Limited edition of 50 prints and signed books).
Jane Paradise has photographed the dune shacks for over a decade during visits and artist residencies. An internationally recognized photographer, she is represented by Alden Gallery in Provincetown, Massachusetts, and Galatea Fine Art in Boston. Featured in the 2022-23 issue of Provincetown Arts, the 192-page Dune Shacks of Provincetown includes scores of original, interior and exterior photographs of the 19 historic dune shacks located in the Peaked Hill Bars Historic District of the Cape Cod National Seashore and the surrounding Provincelands, with a forward by Michael Mailer, son of author and longtime Provincetown resident Norman Mailer. The book was designed in collaboration with New York-based artist Joanne Dugan.
From the publisher:
“Step back in time and into a place of refuge and renewal. This insider’s tour of the dune shacks of Provincetown, Massachusetts, combines photos and text to bring to life the world of these rustic structures scattered across the untamed landscapes of Cape Cod National Seashore. Nearly 100 color photographs explore exteriors and interiors of the 19 shacks, as well as the breathtaking dune landscapes and ocean that batter and beautify them. Accompanying quotations share stories of the eclectic people who stayed in and cared for these places of solitude and creativity, including Henry David Thoreau, Ann Patchett, Tennessee Williams, Norman Mailer, Marsden Hartley, and Josephine Del Deo. This photographic journey is sure to inspire and evoke wanderlust in us all.”
