Prize-winning photographer Greg Currier of Camden is one of dozens of Maine photographers taking part and exhibiting in Maine’s first “Exclusively Photography” white-tented exhibition and sale. “Exclusively Photography,” a celebration of the fine art of photography, is an Art @ Waterfront Park event set for Saturday, Sept. 4 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Currier is a master of light and color who believes the art of photography is more about capturing the varying nuances of light than about recording an object or scene.

“Each season brings its own types of light influenced by the angle of the sun, the humidity in the air, the temperature, reflections off the surroundings, etc. Add to this the daily and hourly changes in light due to the weather, and you have a rich palette of colors and effects that paints very different pictures of the same scene,” Currier said.

Currier also is an author. Two of his books, “The Colors of Lobstering” and “Reflections of Maine,” published by Down East Books, will be available for purchase and to have personally autographed. To see more of his work, visit

Anyone who would like professional advice on improving his or her photography is invited to bring two or three best images for free expert advice between 1 and 4 p.m. in the Capital Area Camera Club tent. Professional fine art photographers will gladly evaluate and give helpful suggestions if needed. There is no charge.

“Exclusively Photography”/Art@Waterfront Park is presented by the Boothbay Region Art Foundation. For more information, call 633-2703 or visit Waterfront Park is at the end of Commercial Street, right downtown. Rain date is Sunday, Sept. 5.
