in pioneer magazine | The Dream Away Lodge

Dream Away Lodge is an eclectic hideaway tucked into the Berkshires, forty-miles away from Northampton on a winding two-lane road. 

Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, and Allen Ginsberg spent some time there on tour as the Rolling Thunder Review (see this Photo in Vanity Fair).  Their photos hang on the walls, over dream catchers and guitars. Not props, but pieces of the life still lived by locals and visitors to The Dream Away. It's hard to make nostalgia feel authentic, but this place does it. The warmth and energy are real.

    1. Tiffany, that is absolutely the best compliment! When I shoot I try to capture things the way we remember them - details and feelings.

  3. What a lovely place to visit. There must be so much history in the place which I imagine is great to reminisce about

  6. This place is begging to have a novel set within its grounds. The first photograph holds so much intrigue.

    1. Katie, how very exciting about your Pentax! I know you are just going to fall in love with film. I've been meaning to buy this book: "Understanding Exposure: How to Shoot Great Photographs with a Film or Digital Camera". I've heard a lot of buzz about it being super useful, clear and artful. If you get it, you'll have to let me know how it goes. And feel free to ask me any questions you might have as well!
