Eastern Maine Camera Club’s guest lecture series is proud to present John and Cynthia Orcutt. John and Cynthia will share their story, their art and images from throughout their journey and from their new photo book ‘Enduring Heights - The High Peaks of Maine’. As always our Guest lectures are free and open to the public. So, join us at the Bangor Parks and Recreation building on Main Street Thursday night November 2nd at 6:30 PM
John and Cynthia Orcutt are fine-art nature photographers and avid outdoor enthusiasts. Following distinguished careers as an architect and landscape architect team, they have pursued their interest in highlighting the need for active preservation of fragile places. Exploring Maine’s High Peaks with camera in hand, their goal is to raise awareness that a place with much to give creates a cause for much to save. Through their photography, John and Cynthia illustrate the irreplaceable beauty and isolation of this rich and storied place. They express the inherent beauty of areas endangered by public access and frequent visitation. Their work is a call for us all to take a role in the stewardship of our natural heritage and to participate in ongoing conservation efforts in our daily lives. John and Cynthia’s work has been exhibited widely and appears in many public and private collections. www.johnorcuttnaturephoto.com
