Brian Kaplan: Not Your Vacation
September 7 - November 9, 2014
Brian Kaplan's photographs in Not Your Vacation are part of an extensive project documenting Cape Cod in the off-season. Kaplan's stark views of shuttered motels and abandoned tourist traps challenge the often nostalgic and idealized depictions of this popular vacation destination. Cleared of out-of-towners, the Cape Cod of winter depicted in Kaplan's unapologetic photographs feels like a desolate ghost town reminding us of the transient nature of leisure time and the isolation that remains after the fleeting summer.
