A selection of saltwater-themed color photographs are on display for the month of August at Good Tern Natural Foods Co-Op, 750 Main St.

Photographer Steve Cartwright said he likes to focus on a what gives a local scene its sense of place and what gives us a sense of belonging to Midcoast Maine. He said he is often moved by the beauty and simplicity of the place we live and he hopes visitors to the co-op will share that sensation.

The member-owned store is open Mondays through Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Cartwright, who serves on Good Tern’s board of directors, has lived in Waldoboro for several decades. A native of New York City, he apprenticed to photographer Barbara Morgan, principal photographer of Martha Graham, Jose Limon and other modern dancers. After 30 years as a staff writer for various newspapers, he turned to freelance journalism and volunteer work for various organizations. He likes to run, swim, sail and hang out with friends. A former town selectman and town festival organizer, he serves on the board of Tanglewood 4H Camp & Learning Center in Lincolnville and Tenants Harbor.

The photographs on exhibit are for sale.
