Contact: Sue Haley, Interpretive Ranger, 508-255-3421 ext. 15
The Perspective Series, showcasing artist's work influenced by Cape Cod National Seashore, is coming to a close with the final exhibit of the season. During the month of May the fine art photographic prints by Philip Keohan will be on exhibit at the Salt Pond Visitor Center.
With tripod in hand and a manual camera with a square frame and fixed lens, Mr. Keohan sets off into the national seashore and other inspiring locations, where nature is ever present, and waits until something moves him. Color, light, subject, contrast, or any combination of these might come together to create the moment that he awaits, the moment that moves him to seize the spectacular unfolding scenes before him. Mr Keohan approaches photography without expectations, letting the image find him.
The photographic images taken by Philip Keohan are scanned and printed as seen in nature. Filters are not used to manipulate color. The Left Bank Gallery in Wellfleet Massachusetts has shown Mr. Keohan's fine art prints since 2000, and now, for the month of May, a number of these eye catching images can be seen at the Salt Pond Visitor Center in Eastham.

The word “cranberry” originated as a contraction of crane berry, a name given to the plant by early settlers because the flower resembles the head of a crane.
