Joseph McGurl grew up on the shore near Boston Harbor. The harbor and its 32 islands were an adventure-filled escape when he was a boy. “The neighborhood I grew up in was densely populated, and the harbor and islands gave me a sense of freedom and space with their open fields and panoramic views,” he says. “I loved exploring these islands and knew them all intimately. I was intrigued by the interaction between land, sea and tides and also the geometry of the island shapes.” He continues to return to them in an ongoing series, The Boston Harbor Islands Project.
