The Maine Woods and the Photographs of Bert Lincoln Call
Thursday, 18 October 2012
Special Collections, Fogler Library
Bert Lincoln Call, a photographer in Dexter, Maine from 1886 until the late 1940s, had a passion for the woods, lakes, and rivers of northern Maine, which he visited annually. Call’s images comprise a unique photographic record of the North Woods. The public has not seen a large part of this extraordinary collection, which Call began 120 years ago. Through Call’s photos we have a visual documentation of the way the Maine Woods looked only thirty years after Henry David Thoreau visited Maine.
Our presenter is Frank Spizuoco, curator, Dexter Historical Society, who has nurtured and promoted the work of Bert Lincoln Call for over forty years. This event will also include a look inside the Bert Call Gallery that is part of UMaine’s new institutional repository, DigitalCommons@UMaine.
