My name is Garrett Seiple (www.garrettseiple.com) and I was born here, on Aquidneck Island. I studied creative writing at Eckered College under Scott Ward. I am self-taught behind the lens but with a lot of guidance from DC Chavez.
I have been often asked: what was the motivation behind starting this blog?
It really started with a desire to form a project that would keep me shooting through the fall and winter. A time of the year which drains motivation. I knew that the project had to be made open to the public or it would be subject to falling by the wayside. Another aspect of the motivation was a string of conversations I was having with a friend, Neil Manacle, whom had just moved here from NYC. We talked much about the island and often about how his perception and how it differs from mine. And from those conversations I began to wonder: what is my perception of this island I call home. This blog is part of my ongoing discovery of what I call home.
