I am a painter and a photographer. There is a common thread running through both mediums. One feeds the other. I shoot primarily in film on vintage cameras. I love how it slows everything down, how it is deliberate and meditative.
Since opening its Portland, Maine, office several years ago, the Icelandic company Eimskip has been shipping more and more goods to and from Maine in its container ships. Two artists recount their ride from Portland to Reykjavik on one of those vessels.
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.
