where boys can be boys, with no iphones in sight
While working for the Boston Globe over the summer of 2017 I was sent to the Lakes Region in New Hampshire to photograph an all boys summer camp. The following is the opening graf to the accompanying news story written by Thomas Farragher with a selection of my photographs.
"ORFORD, N.H. — As the gathering dusk surrenders to a warm summer night, constellations take their timeless forms in an ink-black sky and Port Miller stands before a lakefront campfire and tells the Legend of the Great White Ape that attacks a summer camp — a boys’ camp just like this one.
Before him, boys in a tight circle sit rapt. There are no visual aids. There are no parents around. There isn’t an iPhone in sight.
It’s just Miller, the quiet night, the still lake, and the boys’ imaginations. And it’s magic. "
