The photos are from a series titled North by Down East: People of Maine, and document Maine people through a series of 136 portraits, taken 2001 through 2013, engaged in work and activities. Martin generously donated the collection of photographs to the Special Collections Department in 2013. The other photographs in the collection may be viewed in the Special Collections Department on the third floor of Fogler Library.
