“Frosty Beach Path”Photograph by Linda Pedersen
“When I go out to take photographs, I don’t wait to set things up,” says photographer Linda Pedersen. “I seize the moment.” Mentored by photographer Alison Shaw on Martha’s Vineyard, much of Pedersen’s work is nautical, and she spends a good amount of time exploring the harbors and beaches of different South Shore towns looking for subjects that inspire her to take out her camera. Pedersen captured the image “Frosty Beach Path” in Hull a couple winters ago.
“When I took that particular picture, I was driving down by the beach and we had a little bit of snow. It was ice cold that day, but I jumped out of the car to take the picture,” says Pedersen, who says that she tends to notice things that other people overlook. “I see things a little differently and I hope that my photographs inspire people to go back and pay attention,” she says. Pedersen’s fine art photographs have been displayed at member and juried art shows including the Hull Artists, Hull Lifesaving Museum, North River Arts Society, Plymouth Art Guild, Scituate Art Association’s Front Street Art Gallery and at South Shore Art Center. Her work is also displayed at AZ studio in Hingham and at the restaurant Simply Smiths in Cohasset.
