Jeffrey Serusa grew up and lives on Martha’s Vineyard. He has been photographing nautical and scenic life on the island for over ten years and in 2005 began showing his photographic work at the Granary Gallery. His best known image, Seasmoke, features the beloved ferry Islander sailing into Vineyard Haven Harbor on a January morning when the temperature was 4 degrees and wind howling at 45 miles per hour. There are clouds of opaque smoke rising from the chilly waters, giving the moment a dreamlike feel.
Jeffrey grew up on the island and owns the Seaworthy Gallery. He works primarily with large format wooden cameras as well as medium format and shoots only film. All of his works are printed in house using, high-end Giclee printers on both canvas and German watercolor paper, some as large as ten feet wide. Framing is done in house as well using only high-grade archival materials, which insure a long lasting work of art. Each edition of Giclee is limited, signed, and numbered.
