Photographer Rachel Ganapoler has spent the past 5 years capturing photos of the trades folk who work in the Boatyard.
Ganapoler’s photos are on display at the Port Administration for the next three months – we encourage you to stop in and view her work.
“For the past five years or so, I’ve been truckin’ around the marina, to capture images of what I call ‘Working Class Heroes.’ The folks who have been out there, day after day, year after year, in cold wind and rain, snow and sun…inside and under huge boats…scraping, varnishing, grinding, spraying, painting, welding, endlessly working at these tasks. Part biker, part Buddha, hell raiser, and carpenters of the highest order.
They should be honored…and with that intention, I present this show. Thank you to all of those who let me intrude into your lives.” Rachel Ganapoler
