Maine: Life in a Day


Book Description

What better way to celebrate 50 years of book publishing than to celebrate everyday life in Maine. Gathering the work of 50 photographers from all over the state, the book captures the day to day lives of ordinary Mainers. Primarily a book about people, these images are arranged to follow the course of a day, starting with morning routines, passing through the events of the day, and closing at night

It's a stunning tribute to the extraordinary that can be found in the ordinary. Together these images compose a moving portrait of a small place at a small moment in time.
