Exhibit: Hull Studies by Edwina Rissland

Open during MV Film Center hours, this exhibit showcases the work of photographer Edwina Rissland. 

Edwina L. Rissland focuses tightly on form, texture, and color. Known for her painterly, color-intense images, her favorite subjects are boats of all kinds, bustling markets, and places near the sea. She delights at being up and about at first light, and many of her photos were taken while out exploring at sunrise. She has been coming to Cape Cod and Martha's Vineyard her entire life. She often finds subjects for her painterly abstracts – especially for the ongoing Hull Studies project – in boatyards that build and overhaul wooden boats like Gannon & Benjamin in Vineyard Haven. She also loves the dynamic bustle of working markets.

Her book Morning Shore: A Turn of the Year on Chappaquiddick contains her images paired with prose, lyrics, and text to capture the landscapes and moods of Chappy over the course of entire year. In January 2021 she co-curated and exhibited in Attention to Detail at the Cambridge Art Association, a four-person show of Massachusetts artists who delved deeply into rich visual details of their subjects.
