Gloucester: On the Waterfront by David Bovet

Good Harbor surf & boat  Red, white and green  Terra Nova on the ways

Exhibit at the Matz Gallery, Sawyer Free Library – February 2016

Photographs by David Bovet

Artist’s Statement

Fishing and the sea have defined Gloucester for centuries. The sights and smells of the water and boats are everywhere. I love roaming the docks in Gloucester to see what’s happening and perhaps capture a compelling image.

These photographs attempt to convey some of the unique marine flavor of Gloucester – especially the rugged beauty of the city’s pride, its fishing boats. And a few shots of the wide horizon’s grander view as well. My focus is on light, color and pleasing patterns, on large or small scale.

I hope you enjoy viewing these pictures as much as I’ve enjoyed making them. Walk around Gloucester and check out the waterfront in person!

Biography

This show combines my lifelong passion for boats and the sea with the art of photography. I first visited Gloucester during college, while in Boston for a work term at a fishing boat design firm. Originally trained as a naval architect, I’ve since moved on to management consulting but never lost my love of boats. A Lexington resident, I also own a home in Gloucester and enjoy spending time on Cape Ann. I’m a member of the First Parish Fine Arts Photography Club in Concord and have exhibited at the State House in Boston and at venues in Lexington and Concord.
