The Stars and Lights project began in the fall of 2013 with a simple photographic study of an unassuming lighthouse near our Rhode Island home. It grew into a collection of well over 100 lighthouses throughout the Northeast as far west as Buffalo, as Far East as the US-Canadian border in Lubec, Maine, and as far south as Cape May, New Jersey. Along the way was wonderful cooperation from private landowners, US Coast Guard personnel, local city and town officials from mayors to managers to harbormasters. It's been a great four years and by Thanksgiving 2017 the first book "Stars and Lights: The Darkest of Dark Nights" should be released in time to make a great Christmas gift. The Massachusetts collection is of all the active lighthouses in the state but for two and the hope is to one day capture Long Island Light in Boston harbor and Minots Ledge light off Scituate. I hope you enjoy the gallery and if you'd like prints you can order them directly from me at dazapper316 @hotmail.com
