My goal is to create images that move beyond the well known landmark but are still historically accurate. I am drawn to places along the Gulf of Maine where I have lived and worked for many years. Like all places close to large population centers they have changed significantly over time. We cannot stop change or live in some mythical past. We can however control and direct the change of these areas to leave to future generations an environment they will still recognize as having a unique sense of place. My hope is that these images and stories will encourage the viewer to travel along the Gulf of Maine, to care deeply about these places, and to assist in preserving their sense of place for future generations.
