My project associated with my residency at Acadia National Park has nothing to do with landscape photography, but it would be impossible to spend time there without making a few. Jordan Pond has to be one of the most visited “undeveloped” ponds in Maine- probably in the United States. It’s super easy to get to; consequently, it’s been photographed from every angle using all of today's popular techniques you see online. Still, after taking time looking at these other images made at the pond, I decided that I might be able to provide my own viewpoint. My attempt here is to bring honesty through normal perspective, black and white film, and my all mechanical camera from 1970. I didn’t want to idealize the waterbody, but instead share what it truly feels like on that shoreline. Anyway, this is how I see it, and I don’t think I’m too far off. Welcome to Maine and Acadia National Park!
