Peter Ralston's photography explores and celebrates the two defining characteristics of Maine's coast and islands: the beauty, of course, but - more tellingly - the character of the communities and working waterfronts.
Ralston Gallery is located in Rockport, Maine, at the head of the beautiful (and working) harbor. If you are in the area, do be neighborly!
