"Classic New England".
           I am a native Mainer, having grown up in Castine. I went to school at Hampshire College in Amherst, Massachusetts, but did not study photography. I am self taught, having gotten the love from my father who is also self taught, and from my love of life. I have lived in Portland for two years, after having spent fifteen years in Amherst. My photos are a mixture of digital and 35mm. A few were even taken with a phone camera! As long as I can capture things, I am happy!”JANE MACOMBER
