This is a community photography project, where the island residents choose a meaningful location to represent their island. Then the islanders come out at dusk and shine flashlights (light painting) on their chosen scene while I take a long exposure photograph. The process is a bit more involved and left for a future conversation.
The project goal is to complete a 'one-of-a-kind’ photograph on each of the Maine unabridged year-round islands. I’ve completed photographs of four islands that can be viewed at: http://paintingislands.com/gallery/
If you are interested in helping photographer, Howie Montenko, accomplish this goal on Islesboro, please contact Lisa Freeman at school by phone 734-2252 ext. 126 or email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, email, phone, and any ideas of a location to be photographed that would represent Islesboro. Lisa will compile the list of interested individuals and be the contact person from the school. Thank you!
