Alex has a few copies of this rare, out of print, collectible issue of the prestigious LensWork Magazine that features a twenty image portfolio of Alex's photography from the Isles of Shoals with an essay in which she details of her life as a lone winter caretaker of the Isles of Shoals. Also includes an extended interview of Alex by editor Brooks Jensen that touches on interesting details about how to live alone on an island, working methods necessary in a windswept winter environment, her inspirations, and her sense of community with the wild things all around her.
essay excerpt: : "...Deserted, wind-blown, and stark - in winter these islands feel like they could exist within any time. Look east, and there the ancient ocean rolls, look to the west, and modern civilization glints along the distant mainland; while on the island the old buildings stand sparsely in a harsh wind, fronting the winters of yet another century. Time seems both frozen and fluid here, immediate and endless..."
Contains four other portfolios with artist essays, plus other thoughtful writing by Editor Brooks Jensen. Read more at alexdesteiguer.com/lenswork
