The Oldest State: Portraits Of A Maine Generation

30.00

Demographically speaking, Maine is the oldest state in the nation and home to some incredible individuals. My goal when I started this project was to get to know some of these folks and make portraits to help tell their stories and share who they are.

The project has been an incredible journey. It continues to surprise me and connect me and others in ways I never would’ve predicted when I started. Maine is truly a unique and inspiring place to live, but it’s not just the landscape that makes this state what it is. The the pride, kindness, tenacity, humor and humility of Mainers is inspiring.

I get messages from people around the state every week with great ideas and suggestions on people to feature, and I hope to get an opportunity to meet and photograph each person on my ever-growing list. Because of the connections people have made to this project I’ve had the privilege of sitting in living rooms, cafes, graveyards, and lobster boats listening to stories and jokes that will stay with me for many years to come.

It truly has become a collaborative project with individuals around the state contacting me and sharing names of people in their lives who make a difference in Maine. Thank you to everyone who has supported or participated in this project, and I’m looking forward to more stories and photos to come!

I will be personally signing each pre-ordered book sold now through my website, and you will receive your copy before they’re publicly available. What we’re able to sell now during the pre-order will significantly help with its release and with the project as a whole. I hope to have pre-order books shipping out by June 2019. Thank you again for all your support!
