Rockland — Film photographs by Eve Hupper are on view this month in the Café Gallery of Good Tern Natural Foods Co-op, 750 Main St. The public is invited to a reception for the artist and her “Faces of the Midcoast” show Saturday, Oct. 21, at 5 p.m.

Hupper of Warren fell in love with photography when she was quite young and took every photo class possible during high school. Her freshman year, in she won a Congressional Art Competition Award. After graduating, she continued on to Maine College of Art, where she focused on film photography.

Hupper has always preferred film to digital, because of the process and work involved. She may not be able to get the shot she was hoping for, but she loves the surprise she gets when developing film. Her art is influenced by Margaret Bourke-White, whose work was raw and told a story of the life that she and her subjects lived, with nothing hidden.

The work in this current exhibition “is the life I live, the people I grew up with and have the most memories of,” said Hupper. “These people mean the most to me, and each of their faces tells a story.”

The Good Tern Natural Foods Co-op is open Mondays through Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.; and Sundays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, call 594-8822.
