Abstract

From the time Pennsylvania photographer Peter Ralston first visited longtime friends Andrew and Betsy Wyeth on Southern Island in the late 1970s, he documented his travels along the coast and Maine's islands with a hand-held Nikon. Ralston, also a founder of the Rockland-based Island Institute, has compiled many of his photographs in a new book, "Sightings." In 1980, Betsy Wyeth bought Allen Island off Port Clyde, and Ralston, along with Philip Conklin, then a consulting field naturalist with Hurricane Island Outward Bound School, set about to reclaim the island and restore part of it to its former status as a saltwater farmstead and fishing base. Through that experience, Ralston's interest in Maine deepened, and he began to photograph the place and its people in a new way.
