“They Also Faced The Sea” In Provincetown On Cape Cod.

When you drive out on MacMillan Wharf and look over to Fisherman’s Wharf you are treated to “five larger-than-life black and white photographs of Provincetown women of Portuguese descent, mounted on a building at the end of Fisherman’s Wharf in Provincetown Harbor, and is conceived as a tribute to the Portuguese community and its fishing heritage.”

“They Also Faced The Sea” was installed by Ewa Nogeiec and is striking in its size and black and white nature. Its title embodies the Portuguese women as “mothers, wives, sisters, friends and family of fishermen, as cooks, laundresses, nurses, teachers and telephone operators.”
