Island Light

Landscapes from the Maine Coast

Project StatementMinimize

Small islands have a special quality of light.  What causes it? -- the presence of water everywhere, the scope of the sky, the dramatic changes in weather, the slipping in and out of fog and tide, the distant views.  Quiet, longing, peace, presence, and hints of magic all come together on an island.  The distinctive feeling of the island land and the surrounding sea is what I have worked to capture in this series.  These photographs were made on and around the Fox Islands in Penobscot Bay, Maine.
