“This small yet nuanced place”: Photographs of the Isles of Shoals by Alexandra de Steiguer
For the past 19 winters, Alexandra de Steiguer has lived as the sole human occupant on the Isles of Shoals, off the coast of Maine and New Hampshire.
Her photographs meditate upon the solitude and austere grandeur of these remote, rocky islands. Through her camera lens, past and present merge into a singular, uncanny vision of the natural world. “As I stand upon this far shore among rocks and vistas that have changed so little as to appear almost timeless,” she writes, “I can’t help thinking that, ultimately, it is this place that bears witness to us.” The exhibition features 18 hauntingly beautiful black-and-white photographs recently acquired by the Museum.
Organized by the North Carolina Museum of Art. This exhibition is made possible, in part, by the North Carolina Department of Natural and Cultural Resources; the North Carolina Museum of Art Foundation, Inc.; and the William R. Kenan Jr. Endowment for Educational Exhibitions. Research for this exhibition was made possible by Ann and Jim Goodnight/The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation Fund for Curatorial and Conservation Research and Travel.
