About Steven Koppel

P hotography has become a major part of my life, and played an unexpectedly therapeutic role when my family faced difficult medical challenges. My images seek to convey the deep connection I have with Cape Cod, a place I cherish and home to many of my most meaningful experiences. At all times of the year, and in any conditions, I am often wandering the Cape with my camera, fully immersed in my surroundings. I create images revealing the bonds I feel with this special place.


My photography is also the inspiration behind the EDI Institute, a non-profit organization I founded to help people facing life’s challenges express meaningful aspects of their lives through digital images they create on mobile devices. The EDI Institute has worked successfully in multiple diverse settings, including the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, McLean Hospital, Rosie’s Place (a women’s shelter), the Gosnold Addiction Treatment Center, and the Massachusetts General Hospital.

My images are available for sale through the Focus Gallery in Chatham, MA , with all my profits donated to support the EDI Institute and its work in promoting recovery and resilience in healthcare, community, and educational settings. My photography was also recently featured on Chronicle and in this video produced for the Chatham Orpheum Theater.
