Point Judith Compositions

I have been visiting Point Judith, Rhode Island since I was an infant and I return each summer with my family. Yes, it is known for the Block Island Ferry and great clam chowder shacks, but it’s also a true working fishing town. In fact, Point Judith is one of New England’s few remaining deep-sea fishing ports. Hulking vessels with names such as the Captain Bligh, Perseverence, and Stormy Elizabeth come and go, day and night, fishing for tuna, bass, cod, flounder, lobster, and scallops. While mooring their boats, the men throw their nets, floats, and equipment on the docks, unintentionally forming beautiful compositions of texture, color and pattern. I neither arranged nor art directed these photographs, just pointed my Nikon down and shot. To see a professional photographer’s take on this subject, visit Markam Starr’s timeless study “Endangered Species: The Commercial Fishermen of Point Judith.”
