  • Gregory Lenz, Provincetown Photographer

    Posted: February 13th 2014 @5:09 PM

    I knew that I was in love with Gregory Lenz’s work from the first moment I saw it on Facebook. Other artists in Provincetown talk about the light; Gregory captures it. His photographs call to a dreamland where light is …
