SIDELIGHTS: Photographer Cary Hazlegrove first arrived on Nantucket Island not long after graduating from Virginia's Hollins University in 1978, and immediately began her life-long love affair with the region. "I fell in love with the island the second my feet hit the ground," she shared in a profile for the Nantucket Preservation Trust. In 1980 she began producing slide shows of her photographs, an annual tradition that endured for twenty-three years. Several compilations of Hazlegrove's works have been published in book form, including Nantucket: Seasons on the Island, The Nantucket Restaurants Cookbook: Menus and Recipes from the Faraway Isle, and Nantucket: The Quiet Season.

The photographs in Nantucket: Seasons on the Island depict the popular tourist destination during its peak travel seasons in addition to its blustery winters. Booklist reviewer Gilbert Taylor commented, "These pretty colorplates celebrate … sandy, windswept Nantucket. Hazlegrove focused on Nantucket from a native's perspective in Nantucket: The Quiet Season, which includes quotes from island inhabitants in addition to photos taken during the off-season. Alison Hop-kins wrote in a review for Library Journal, "Hazlegrove's love and understanding of the area shine throughout this well-planned book, which will be savored by many." Hazlegrove also contributed photographs to Melissa Clark and Samara Farbar Mormar's The Nantucket Restaurants Cookbook, which Library Journal reviewer Tom Cooper called "as much travel book as it is cookbook. Hazlegrove's pictures dwell equally on Nantucket Island scenery as on the food presented."
