Dennis Public Library welcomes July artist Ed Grossman

Throughout the months of July and August, artist Ed Grossman shares his curiosity at how a familiar landscape and instant film impacted his childhood.

Ed's passion for photography started in his youth. He still remembers being captivated watching Polaroids develop before his eyes. The way that film, chemicals, and time worked together to create a picture is something he's never forgotten. Today those memories of instant film inspire him to combine artistic elements into storytelling portfolios.

His projects include: Sunday Drive, a nostalgic look at how his world view broadened while in the backseat of the family station wagon; Beaches Offseason, where locations associated with Summer fun take on a different character in Winter, and Fading American Bookstore, documenting the impact of cultural change on a retail institution.

In addition to local venues, he's participated in nationally publicized exhibitions at the Griffin Museum of Photography, PhotoPlace Gallery in Vermont, and the New Orleans Photo Alliance. Online, he's been a featured artist on Lenscratch and has appeared in The Online Photographer. Ed's work is in private print collections throughout the country as well as the public archive of the Harry Ransom Center at the University of Texas - Austin.

A lifelong New Englander, Ed has a B.A. from Brandeis University. He currently lives and works in Mattapoisett, MA.

Ed's work will be on display during library hours until the end of August. For more information visit his website.
