“A Bit of Déjà Vu” — More of Jim Dugan’s Photography of Windjammers and “Maine Kaleidoscopes”

Monday, July 1 Monday, July 29

The Camden Public Library welcomes Rockland photographer Jim Dugan for an exhibit in the Picker Room Gallery during the month of July, featuring a mixture of his windjammer photos and his “Maine Kaleidoscopes.”

For those keeping track, yes, Jim Dugan did just have another show of his photography at another institution just down the road. But fear not! Jim has changed the show enough that even if you saw the other one, you’ll find exciting new work in the Picker Room.

“I mostly consider myself a straight photographer,” Jim says, “But I’ve embraced digital processes and all of my photos now go through some digital enhancements. That’s mostly intended to heighten the feeling I had when making the exposure. Sometimes, though, I’m looking to transform the image into something completely new.”

Jim teaches photography aboard the schooner Mary Day (docked just down the hill from the Library) and has served as crew aboard her a few times. His Kaleidoscopes series is digital composites that transform a photo of a recognizable Maine place into something completely different.
