Meet the Author

Jef Klein worked in the restaurant industry in New York City and New Jersey for 14 yearsas a bartender, waitress, and Union Vice President. Since 1988, she has been an editor and freelance writer, working for Princeton University, City Harvest, The Museum of Television and Radio, inMotion.org, and was a contributing writer and bar reviewer for Shecky’s Bar, Club, and Lounge Guide. Klein lives in Kendall Park, New Jersey, with her son Ellis, her daughter Simone, and her dog, Archie. Cary Hazlegrove: I moved to Nantucket in the spring of 1978 from the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. Nantucket has been my home and central to my work for more than thirty years.
Surrounded by endless beauty and unique seasonal rhythms, the Nantucket landscape inspires me. For over thirty years I have collected images and gathered observations about my layered island existence. The beaches, moors, ponds, people, weather, and the light are constantly at my side as I photograph every corner of my Nantucket life. This love of capturing Nantucket with a camera, has allowed me to assemble a library of Nantucket images that have found their way into eleven books, thirteen productions and numerous editorial pieces.
I photograph weddings and portraits as passionately as I do my landscapes. I have over thirty years experience, shooting intimate to large scale weddings, and small to extended family portraits. I enjoy being involved in a family milestone!
I live in the village of Siasconset, with my husband A.W. Bullington, a musician, composer, and my production collaborator (www.andybullington.com), and our daughter, Virginia.
