The northern Maine coast, from Ellsworth to Lubec, remains relatively untrammeled by tourists. You can smell the kerosene heaters and wood fires, see the old pickups on blocks and lobsterboats tied to their piers. "Upcoast Maine" is a look at the Maine of our imaginations, not yet turned into a Starbucks of our nightmares. Photographer Richard Nilsen has been visiting this ragged section of the state for more than 30 years and his photographs attempt to capture some of the magic of this landscape.
Richard Nilsen was art critic for The Arizona Republic in Phoenix, Ariz., for 25 years. He was also the classical music critic, the dance critic, the opera critic, the architecture critic and the backup movie critic. He has written for every section of the newspaper except the Business section. He has been a photographer for more than 40 years. Now retired, he lives in the Blue Ridge.
