The Center for Maine Contemporary Art, located at 21 Winter Street in Rockland, will present an exhibition called “S.B. Walker: Nor’east” May 29–September 12. Included in the exhibition are more than 50 images from the photographer’s six-year journey documenting contemporary life in Maine.

Beginning in early 2014, Walker traveled more than 100,000 miles throughout the state in an attempt to render a nuanced visual record of Maine. In a news release, Walker said, “It was … a windy road, dictated by intuition, serendipity and strange happenings. Over the course of the project, I’ve had the privilege to spend time with 10th-generation Mainers, aging back-to-the-landers, young farmers, recent immigrants, artists, ex-convicts, entrepreneurs, drag queens, affluent summer folk, fishermen, crypto-currency traders and so on. Despite the richness of these encounters, I am left with more questions than answers.”

Walker lives and works in Rockland and Portland. His works have been exhibited internationally and are in the public collections of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; Peabody Essex Museum; Smith College Museum of Art; The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; and others. His projects have been featured in The New York Times, The Guardian, Smithsonian Magazine, Photo District News, Lens Culture, Hyperallegic, and Aperture, among other publications. His first monograph, “Walden,” was published in 2017.
