The show will run Aug. 30-Oct. 20.
“I live on a peninsula between two tidal rivers. Every evening, for the past three years, during the spring tide I go to those rivers and visit a singular and local way of life structured around season, sunrise, sunset, the incoming tide, available moonlight, and good luck,” said Metzger, who took the photos using a vintage film cameras and 120mm or 35mm film.
