I got to visit Shelter Island for the first time, I think I'll have to go back and spend some more time soon. Grounds for Sculpture sent me up to meet Ned Smyth at his studio. He was so hospitable, even put me up for the night with a full belly. We worked hard in the heat to photograph these 8ft pieces of sculpture. I really wanted to get a lot of photographs taken in one day so that he had enough to work with for his show at GFS, coming up in October. I would really like to spend some more time with Ned to grasp more of his life story but it sure sounds like an interesting one. Hopefully we will cross paths again, I will definitely be going to his opening.
