Publisher: Bulfinch Press

The acclaimed book of color photographs of Cape Cod is back in print with a new, expanded edition, including seven additional photographs from Joel Meyerowitz's continuing body of work on the outer Cape.

Originally published in 1979 to accompany an exhibition at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, Cape Light, quickly became a classic and one of the most influential color photography books published in the latter part of the twentieth century. These exquisitely printed photographs taken "out near the tip, where it is just a finger of land in the ocean and the light is the ocean's light, opalescent and eloquent," capture the unique juncture of sky, sea, and land that is Cape Cod. Everyday scenes — tiny figure on a deserted beach, a porch railing against a storm-darkened sky, a blue rat leaning on a summer cottage are transformed by the poignant light of the Cape and the photographer's subtle and luminous vision.
