For hundreds of years, photographers, like other artists, have made their way to Maine to capture the natural beauty and human culture of the state. Maine Photography: A History, 1840-2015 (Down East Books, 2016), co-authored by BC alumna Libby Bischof, is the first comprehensive overview of the history of photography in the state. Providing basic knowledge of the most important people and institutions to have promoted photography, this volume also studies the ways in which photography has informed the understanding of the social and cultural history of Maine. Bischof, a cultural historian, is also the co-author of Maine Moderns: Art in Seguinland, 1900-1940.
