From a series of Cape Cod photographs I call photographic haiku. Elegant simplicity in a minimalist style.
Rowland Scherman began taking pictures in New York in 1958. In 1961, he served as the first photographer for the Peace Corps. Traveling the world, he helped establish an image for the newly-formed agency. Going freelance in 1964, Scherman has subsequently done covers and photojournalism for LIFE, Time, Newsweek, Paris Match, Playboy, and National Geographic.He won a Grammy in 1968 for an album cover for Bob Dylan, and in 1969 was voted Photographer of the Year by the Washington Art Directors' Association. He lived in Britain for seven years, and there created the book Love Letters, also taking time to herd sheep and work as a carpenter in South Wales. In 1991 he published a book of photographs about Elvis Presley--Elvis is Everywhere. Scherman now lives in Orleans, Massachusetts, where his work includes landscape photography and portraiture.
