For the past 15 years, Chronogram has published a town profile each month (sometimes more than one) in our Community Pages section. It’s a wide-ranging feature in which we try and capture some of the longstanding essence of a place as well as the more transient zeitgeist of the moment, that lightning-in-a-bottle vibe. Given the accelerated pace of change in the region over the last few years, we’ve spent a lot of time and energy chasing the rapid evolution of the Hudson Valley in our coverage. Right now, it feels like lightning is crackling everywhere.

Earlier this year, we started experimenting with pop-up portrait shoots in the communities we cover. As well as reporting on the towns and photographing the main attractions and select businesses, we’ve invited members of the community to sit for a rapid portrait session with our photographer David McIntyre. We brought the traveling road show to Beacon on April 2, where we set up at Garage Gallery. (“Beacon: Vibe Shift” by Brian PJ Cronin begins on page 45.) Over 50 Beaconites showed up on a sunny spring day to be photographed. It was a glorious event, neighbors coming together to support their fair city. Even the mayor showed up!

The only problem: We didn’t have enough room to run all the photos in the Community Pages section. And while all the photos will run online (Chronogram.com/Beaconshoot), we wanted to make sure everyone at the shoot got their picture in the magazine. Voila! A big thank you to everyone who came out on April 2 and to Scott Lerman and Susan Keiser of Garage Gallery for hosting us.
