Each summer beckons with dreamy carefree expectations for adventure, relaxation and love. The fact that no summer entirely lives up to those ideals does surprisingly little to thwart the anticipation and hope that greet it each year. Warm weather and waterside landscapes continuously lure us away from the cold facts of jobs and responsibilities, making it easy for time away to sound fabulous and unforgettable. Summer’s great appeal exists in the long sunlit hours that imbue our environment with warmth and our stories with optimism. It is only as the days annually shorten into autumn that this bliss predictably transforms into bittersweet nostalgia, leaving us only with records of summers past.Made over ten summers, these photographs roughly span an uncertain time in my life between finishing college and getting married.
