Humans of Nantucket

Rachel Fabiszak

"This is a photo of my Grandmother’s inn from the 80’s. She was born and raised on Nantucket and ran her Inn, The White House, for 40 plus years. This was her little photo and now I have it. The picture reminds me every day of how important photography really is. The old photos we have tell the story of our family and my grandmother’s life here on Nantucket. The photos are priceless to me. 

"As photographers we are always capturing a time, a place, and a moment that will never be the same. We are preserving these moments to show future generations. Nantucket is such a special place to call home and I love sharing our island through photographs. I love documenting our daily island life and all the great people who live here. It's also amazing to meet people who travel in from all over the world to spend time here. When they leave, I am happy to have created photos of their Nantucket memories that they can keep forever."
