He is scanning the Atlantic, as he has for three months almost every summer since John F. Kennedy was president. Lee Hahn may be in between bites of a chicken sandwich. He may be loudly channeling Elvis. If the ocean is calm, he may have drifted into the observant-daydreaming state lifeguards master.

The Beatles, LeBron James, and Barack Obama ––they’ve all been subjects of Nat Solomon’s artwork, along with still-lifes, sunsets and the children at Camp Hillel, in Lawrence, where Solomon works as a photographer. more
Our beloved dog Kirby died last week. She was a yellow lab mix adopted from the North Shore Animal League 16 years ago. A long life— but not nearly long enough for us.
