This is Stonington is a sequence of images I created in a 90-minute period on October 15, 2015 in Stonington, Maine.
Stonington was suggested to me by photography great, John Paul Caponigro, during a workshop he was hosting. I separated from the group the night before and drove down. On my way, I stopped off on Route 1, to shoot an old dilapidated shack protected by some ferrell cats. The rest of the way down to Stonington smelled of cat shit. I removed my boots upon arrival that evening, wrapped them up in a plastic bag, and stored them underneath the bench photographed on the last image of the sequence. I dined at the Harbor Cafe that evening and again in the morning after the shoot walk-about. Inside the cafe is a painting of an older man staring out the window towards the harbor.
Every shot of the sequence is presented in the order in which it was shot. I feel it had to be presented in its entirety because of the subject matter and the way in which I found it. Stonington and other seaside lobster communities like it often find their town littered with objects that no one no longer owns so no one no longer owns responsibility for it. This scene has been here for decades judging from the milk cans and other items present. This lobster boat graveyard is in the direct shadows of the lovely bed & breakfasts and private homes that overlook the harbor. Lucky for them, the Stonington Fire Department can respond quickly but prevention is more effective than fire fighting in protecting the homes around it.
