“Here are pages from a photographer’s summer notebook, the sights he wishes to remember, the feelings he wishes to record… These pages from my notebook encompass that same time, those same places, seen through a different eye, recorded in a different language…” Ruth Bains Hartmann. This book is a record of a shared summer holiday in coastal Maine, not an album of incidents but a distillation of a particular time and place through images and words. Long married, much travelled, often separated by work, but together here in the same place during a calm interval of privacy, photographer and writer reveal separate realities and parallel memories that together form one statement.
Photographs of their family summerhouse and the quiet Maine countryside through which they roam without plan or destination are not described but enhanced by the writer’s memories of past summers, and perhaps of time itself. Both separate and personal, these images and words are a quiet celebration of a fondly remembered summer.
