See, Sip, Savor! with Steven Koppel
Time & Location
Come see what makes the Brewster Flats so special! Is it their alluring expansiveness? Their constantly changing forms? The wide range of colors you can find right on the water's edge? Decide for yourself! Steven's presentation will be followed by a book signing and fresh oysters from Crow's Pasture with a bubbly toast of Prosecco or sparkling water. Limited space is available so reserve your tickets today!
Steven Koppel is a local photographer whose imagery seeks to convey the raw beauty of Cape Cod, and the importance of the protection and enhancement of this extraordinary natural landscape. A Brewster resident for over 20 years, Steve can often be found with his camera being splashed by pre-dawn surf along the National Seashore, or immersed in Cape Cod Bay’s tidal flats under the stars. Steve is represented locally by the FOCUS Gallery in Chatham and donates proceeds from the sale of his work to the Association to Preserve Cape Cod. Steve’s new book, The Brewster Flats, is a collection of emotive images chronicling the extraordinary visual spectacles that occur in this ever-changing landscape.
Steve is the founder of the non-profit EDI Institute. Through digital imagery, EDI helps promote healing and resilience for individuals facing challenges including mental illness, cancer, and addiction. Prior to his focus on photography, Steve spent 20 years as a business consultant, leaving in 2002 to volunteer with non-profit organizations to help maximize social impact. Steve’s work includes serving on the board of the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, and roles with several other healthcare organizations including McLean Hospital, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, and Gosnold on Cape Cod.
Self-Expression Through Imagery
Steve believes in the power of self-expression through imagery, independent of an individual’s artistic training or background. In his presentation, he will share images conveying feelings and experiences during specific moments on the beaches and tidal flats of Cape Cod. He will also present images created by individuals using Expressive Digital Imagery (EDI) on mobile devices to convey thoughts and feelings in ways not possible through words alone. Many of these individuals face challenges including mental illness, cancer, and addiction.
The Museum would like to offer a special thank you to Steven Koppel, Joseph Carr, and Quivett Neck Oysters for making this event possible.
