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.

The Maine I Love - Photographs by Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences

These images are part of an exhibit at the Portland Public Library (March 6-31, 2015) entitled “Tiny Giants: Marine microbes revealed on a grand scale.” The photos were taken by scientists at the East Boothbay-based Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences who explore how marine microbes drive global ocean processes. These tiny, nearly invisible plants and animals provide a foundation for life both in the ocean and on land. They consist of plants—phytoplankton that provide half of the oxygen we breathe, and animals—zooplankton that serve as the source of food for all marine life from fish to whales.
