As part of the Maine Photo Project (, the L.C.Bates Museum will offer an exhibition of Maine artist/photographers who focus on natural history both in the museum setting and out in nature. The exhibition runs from Tuesday, September 15, 2015 and run until December 30, 2015. The exhibition includes artist/photographers Gary Green, Rosamond Purcell, Lauren Shaw, Leslie Bowman, Thomas Birtwhistle, John Stetson, Lisa Ennis, Christian Farnsworth, Jim Nickelson, nataliya slinkoand Michael Grillo.  Each artist has created a unique image that depicts their personal vision of nature, but also speaks to the viewer. The artists’ statements on labels express the stories behind their work. What Christian Farnsworth writes of his work speaks for many of the photographers. He writes, “My photographic inquiry explores the various ways we perceive the landscape.  I hope to render the photograph in a way that is more aligned with our own visual perceptions, while subsequently satisfying our human penchant to categorize the world through multiple perspectives.” “I employ the camera as a gathering tool, varying position and movement to complement our human response to visual stimuli.”
