Exhibit tied

to Beston book

A photographic exhibit of 10 framed images by Robby McQueeney (The Dune Tramp) honoring Henry Beston, and his iconic book, “The Outermost House,” is featured in the VIS Gallery of the Eastham Public Library during October.

The Dune Tramp will conclude the month with a gallery talk at the library on Oct. 28 at 2 p.m.

The chapters in Beston’s memoir follow the seasons, describing the forces of nature he experienced during those months.

Each image was selected to bring one chapter of the book to life. The Dune Tramp’s photographs were captured along The Great Beach - Beston’s playground, and in Eastham, not far from where his Outermost House once stood.

The title of each picture was composed using Beston’s words and phrases from the respective chapter.

In the gallery talk The Dune Tramp will discuss each photograph, and read passages from the book, which correspond to the image titles.
