"Dusk to Dawn, The Old Village at Night"

Dusk to Dawn

A unique limited edition book of photographs with a running text by E. Joan Horrocks. This hardcover book is printed on thick photographic paper and includes a map of the old village area of Chatham MA. Joan’s photographs in the book are from dusk on to dawn during all seasons and all weather. “Dusk to Dawn” is sold at local book stores, at Atwood House Museum, and at The Monomoy National Wildlife Refuge for $35 a copy. (The Refuge gets a 25% discount on books sold there.) Giclee prints from the book are available in a boxed portfolio by contacting the author.

This is a gentle bedtime story for grown-ups. Photographs and text chronicle the sky as it turns to a sunset orange. The flag comes down at the Coastguard Station and a fox runs over the road hunting for dinner. As night descends, the town fades into darkness but then lovely unexpected vignettes begin to show up under moon light, street light, car light and house light. We wander the night streets through these photographs until dawn when the first fishing boat heads out to sea under a glorious sunrise. Joan Horrocks lives in Chatham’s old village, which is situated west and north of the Chatham Light. She is a photographer, sculptor and writer who feels grateful to have the light gently wink in and out her windows…”my big night light” she says.
