Beth is a native New Englander who spent her adult working years in Pittsburgh, relocating to Maine in her later years. She lives there with her husband and spends much of her time trying to capture Maine and New England through eyes from elsewhere. She feels that she has returned to see the place for the first time! She is also a mother and grandmother who loves photographing children...only wishes she had more of them to act as models!
Family albums will someday be rich sources of ethnographic information. Most families
collect photographs. They are the stock and trade of our collective memory in this culture.
I am a transplanted New Englander to Western Pennsylvania. I started taking photographs in
order to share my new home with family in New England who were so anchored to the soil that
they would never come here to see our beautiful city. I took photos of places with the
puzzle of how to capture it so that people who had never seen it could truly experience it!
The world is around us every day, but do we really see it? Most of us go through our daily
routines without seeing, as if asleep. I hope to capture the world I inhabit so that people
may see things they might otherwise have missed or to see ordinary things in extraordinary
I have always enjoyed perusing photography collections that told stories about people
and places; that took the ordinary and made it extraordinary. Just as poetry helps us re-
experience emotions and events in ways that we might not otherwise have, photography can
call us back visually. I hope that by stopping time with the snap of a shutter, I can
capture it in a capsule called 'photograph.' I hope that people will look at my photographs
and say, "I know/knew that," re-experience it, interpreted in a new way or perhaps truly
see it for the first time!
