Reblogged from Tara Wray Photography

It was a strange week around the neighborhood this week. Heres a few details from along the way that mostly didn’t make the Instagram feed….

Some shots from a new body of personal work begun this week. 

Thanks for the posting Photographers Society!

Some shots from a photo essay on the ports in southern New England. Off to the press in a month.

A few cellphone shots from some strange weather over the weekend. 57 degrees outside and the ocean was frozen. 

A few shots from an article on female commercial fishermen(fisherwomen?) photographed on a very cold, single digit December day. 

From an assignment shot over the summer on the Narragansett Indians.

I spent several days on the tribal land with Chief Matthew Thomas photographing a variety of locations of importance to the Narragansett Indian Tribe’s past and present histories. These photographs show the vacant elderly housing development that due to several circumstances never became completed, as well the “Baby Crying Rocks”, where children deemed unfit were dealt with.

It was a pleasure meeting the Chief and his sister, as well as taking a break on a hot day and drinking water right out of a clear spring. 

Shot over the summer for a magazine article that recently went to print. 

Came across this gem from the summer, a cellphone shot of my father.

A few shots from last week, shooting a story on razor clams. Its always a nice day at work when you get to commute to a sandbar by kayak.
