“They Also Faced the Sea” was an art installation of five large black and white photographs of Provincetown women of Portuguese descent mounted on a building on the end of Fisherman’s Wharf in Provincetown Harbor (2003 – 2005). Norma Holt’s beautiful portraits of Almeda Segura, Eva Silva, Mary Jason, Bea Cabral and Frances Raymond are meant to represent all the women of Provincetown who over the years have been the backbone of this vital fishing village. The installation was designed to help keep the spirit and the presence of the Portuguese culture alive. Please click on the link to find out more about these women and this installation.
I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling. View all posts by Heyjude
