Senator Justin Alfond

Through the Maine Arts Commission, I was recently chosen by State Senate President, Justin Alfond to have five of my photographs hung in his office at the State House. Mr. Alfond chose photographs from my past series mnemonics and the newest  series Wunderkammer. The photographs were taken with my 4x5 large format camera  throughout Lincolnville and Vinalhaven. They emulate the spirit of the midcoast with the light they possess and the old time nostalgia of collections and nature that has stood still. While visiting the office of Senator Alfond, we talked casually and joked about the reactions that visitors to his office had when they looked at my photographs. The Senator appreciated the conversation that they had generated that steered away from the usual. It was a wonderful experience meeting him and sharing time talking about photography and my career, with someone so nice and appreciative of artists. The photographs are one loan for two years and I hope to run into Senator Alfond again.
