Gift of the artist

A native of the North Shore of Massachusetts where he currently lives, David Short has been photographing that area, “along the edge of land and water,” for thirty years.  Short says, “For me it’s meditation, looking closer, seeing how light plays off dancing water, rough stone, earth.  Often I return to the same place for variations of season, atmosphere, and light.  Sometimes I sit in silence, waiting.”   Frequent travel to other areas and abroad also has provided him with a variety of subject matter for his photographs.

David Short received a B.F.A. in photography from Massachusetts College of Art.  His photographs have been widely exhibited in the New England area.
