Salt students have been documenting Maine for almost 40 years. Whatever preconceived notions you have about Portland (our home base) and the rest of the Pine Tree state will most likely be challenged (in a good way) by the beautiful work and unexpected stories that our students discover.

We are exhibiting a variety of images created by Salt students over the past few years.

Our hope was to introduce viewers to the unique landscape of Maine and the incredible breadth of stories that can be pursued during a semester at Salt.

These single images all part of larger stories (photo essays and visual narratives) and some are part of multimedia pieces that were also produced at Salt.
