L 417-416-418 triptych 100 dpi

One of my images, Fatima, was selected for the 2015 Open Regional Juried Photography Show at the Barn Gallery in Ogunquit, Maine. The exhibition will run through Saturday, July 25 and is one of the sites of the Maine Photo Project.

The triptych is one from a series I am working on documenting baseball fields in the Atlantic Canada provinces (the Maritimes, parts of Quebec, and Newfoundland and Labrador).

Close to the Edge

“Close to the Edge” was shot from 2000 to 2011 and represents the images I produced as I got more familiar with the coast along the Gulf of Maine. It took a few years to produce the final print catalog (available under the publications tab from Magcloud) and it is now available as a free digital download.

I hope you will take a few moments to download the interactive PDF file. The interactive features should be available on any PC or Mac that has adobe acrobat reader. If you are viewing it on a tablet you might want to open it in a separate program such as Good Reader to maintain the interactive function.

As my goal is to share these images with as many people as possible, I am offering to send one free 8x 11 print (on handsome Hahnemuhle rag paper) to anyone who would like one. Just pick out your favorite image! Send me your mailing address either at the contact email or and I will send it out to you free of charge.

Finally, if you can share this link with your friends and social media contacts it would be greatly appreciated.

Close to the Edge

Images from the Gulf of Maine

June 1 to July 30


Over thirty photographs from a collection of my work from the Gulf of Maine will be on display June1 – July 30 at the Portable Pantry in Rochester, New Hampshire. The images are a blend of cultural anthropology and landscape photography. I’ve live and worked near the coast for more than thirty years and have photographed there extensively over the last twelve years.

The Portable Pantry is a great place for lunch or breakfast. They also offer an excellent catering service. The owner, Susan Jackson-Rafter, is an active supporter of local artists.
