I photographed a story for the New York Times Travel section about oystering in Wellfleet, MA last month. I love stories like this where I am given some names from the editors of who to shoot but for the most part the directive is go here and shoot what what you find. It was a fun two-day shoot learning about the small town on Cape Cod and what an oysterman does on a daily basis. It was pre-vacation season when I was there so it was incredibly peaceful. Photographing the work in Wellfleet harbor had to be based around low tide as that is when the grant owners (a grant is a oyster bed in aquaculture) have access to their oysters. I was amazed to hear that some of the grants have 100,000 of the crustaceans on them. I also tried a few of the oysters myself for the first time. As fresh as they get, straight off the sea floor and on the half shell. Mmmmm, oysters.
