Personal Project – “Woodsmen”

From the time the first sawmill opened in South Berwick in 1634, to the 1830’s, when Bangor was the world’s largest lumber port, through the mechanization of the industry in the 20th Century, to the current day’s focus on sustainability, logging has been part of the fabric of Maine. In an industry constantly changing and reinventing itself, the one constant has been the Woodsman. The faces pictured here represent in many ways Maine itself – hardy, resourceful, and determined. Keenly in tune with the land, they continue to provide, as their predecessors did, the foundational materials for building and maintaining strong communities.
    

National Parks Final Four

So many national parks burst with beauty that it's almost impossible to have a favorite...and yet, that is the exact task we've set for our photographers. Because we love competition for the sake of competition and bragging rights, and inspired by the recently completed NCAA basketball tournaments, we have compiled a list of 16 (of the 60 eligible) National Parks, seeded them, put them head to head and let our photographers decide. We're now down to the Elite Eight. Which one will emerge as Champion?
    

Sweet 16 National Parks

So many national parks burst with beauty that it's almost impossible to have a favorite...and yet, that is the exact task we've set for our photographers. Because we love competition for the sake of competition and bragging rights, and inspired by the NCAA basketball tournament currently going on, we have compiled a list of 16 (of the 60 eligible) National Parks, seeded them, put them head to head and let our photographers decide. Which one will emerge as Champion?
    

Bird Conservation

Because of habitat loss and competition from invasive birds such as the European starling, the Purple Martin was nearly extirpated from the province of British Columbia. Through a volunteer nest box program, the local population has since grown to around 600 breeding pairs.
    

New Year’s Resolutions

The beginning of the year is a natural time for self-reflection, for looking back on the fond memories from the year that was and thinking about our desires and hopes for the year to come. It’s a blank canvas, a wealth of possibilities, potential infinitum, and most importantly a chance to make lists! It’s never fun looking back on the list, realizing you never gave up sugar or called your sister weekly, so this year we asked some of our photographers and Aurora staff what their resolutions for 2018 are.
