The Maine I Love - Susan Metzger

Photographs by Susan Metzger

By The Editors

“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. It’s quieter, there’s no LCD screen to be constantly checking, no Photoshop. I look for what is authentic and simple in a place, what doesn’t need to be arranged and styled. I love Maine not for “how life should be,” but for how it actually is. These photos were taken on April 26 in downtown Round Pond, where it was 37 degrees and the light was fading early but the promise of spring was palpable.” — Susan Metzger
