Reginald Lewis's Down East
Images of America Series

by Reginald Worth Lewis, Jr.

Copyright 2000, Arcadia Publishing
128 pages, Softcover, 9.25"x6.5"

From the back cover:
In North Carolina's Down East region, beautiful scenery and landscapes are an everyday occurrence, whether it be a peaceful day full of clear, azure skies or a tempestuous climate marked by dramatic clouds of black and gray illuminated by streaks of brilliant lightning. Born in 1911 in Morehead City, Reginald Worth Lewis, a gifted painter and photographer, found inspiration in this environment for his art and documented the area's natural beauty through his attentive brushstrokes and his camera's ever-vigilant lens.

Possessing an eye for the area's natural artistry, Reginald Lewis was able to photograph and capture truly the Down East experience. This volume, with over 200 black-and-white photographs, celebrates his vision and showcases some of his best work over his award-winning career. Mr. Lewis recorded the area's charm by finding symmetry and compelling subject matter in the everyday and Mundane, such as scenes along the waterfront, from shrimpers returning after a long day's trip, to dilapidated boats lining the shoreline, to fishermen hard at work retrieving full nets, to cats finding leisure and sport along the docks. Throughout the book, these images provide readers an opportunity to experience the Down East of yesteryear, a time when Morehead City was still a small fishing and shrimping village and the pace of life was measured by the changing tides.

Author Reginald Worth Lewis Jr., son of the famed photographer, has compiled a wonderful tribute to his father's career as an artist and preservationist. Appealing to both longtime residents and newcomers to the area, Reginald Lewis's Down East serves as fitting testimony to one man's ability and also a region's undeniable charm and character.
