In Eastern Light is Steven Keirstead's exploration of the Earth, Water and local vernacular Architecture of rural Hancock County, Maine. Lying east of the Penobscot River, the Downeast Coast region includes the spectacular Acadia National Park, as well as quiet seaside villages.
In a novel approach to documentary and fine art photography, Steven combines an aesthetic inspired by Japanese Painting with medium format film photography. This photographic diptych series was made with careful planning to allow printing of each pair of adjacent negatives on a single sheet of paper. This book presents the diptychs as an artistic meditiation of light and place.
