Woodbridge, a Philadelphia socialite, was a gifted amateur photographer active from 1884 through 1915. This stark seascape is an excellent early example of her photographs that stress light and atmospheric effects. The boathouse provides a sense of scale in this grand, sweeping scene dominated by a rocky beach and cloud-filled sky. Her photographs are distinguished by a successful union of factual detail and broad tonal effects.
