About the Book
Daniel Sutherland’s photographs present fossilized frames of Nantucket Island’s majestic nature. For its visitors it represents a moment in time and for its inhabitants the poetry of a precious and protected place unlike most on the planet. Daniel has been capturing Nantucket for over two decades, his lens in synchronicity with its changing values and reverence to its past. Through photography—expressing the contemplative nature of the artist’s gaze upon the land and oceanic environment—we are immersed in fragility and exhilaration when faced with grandeur beyond our intellectual and emotional understanding, speaking to our most basic senses and our humanity. The work engages our collective need to discover forgotten paradises that we are reminded daily are disappearing. The artist’s narrative speaks to an inner voyage that expands outward into hope for the future. As Mark Rothko aptly suggests, "Silence is so accurate".
