The Maine I Love - Photographs by Andrea Hand

The Maine I Love - Photographs by Andrea Hand

Bangor-based artist and photographer Andrea Hand specializes in events and portraits. A visit to this private fishing camp in Northern Maine inspired her to add landscapes to her repertoire. “I have lived in Maine for 26 years, but until last year had never participated in the ‘camp’ lifestyle. When folks talked about ‘going to camp,’ I thought they were talking about a week away at some kind of summer camp. Then last summer I was invited to an 1890s fishing camp for a late-season jaunt. As we turned off the logging road and across the small bridge onto the site, my soul was flooded with the spirit of this sacred place. I felt the presence of those who have gone before and understood the romantic attachment my dad and brother always expressed after returning from a Maine fishing experience. For the next 24 hours, the environment embraced me and I became a landscape photographer eager to capture the brilliance of a beautiful place.” For more of Hand’s work, visit www.andreahand.com.
