Artist's Statement

The State Of Maine Is A Wonderful Place Where Every Significant Feature Has Been Painted And Photographed For Generations.

The Works Presented Here Represent My Efforts To Showcase The Wonders Of Maine In Ways That Are A Little More Evocative And Striking.

My Goal Is To Create A Photograph That Makes A Connection With You And Is Worthy Of Being Displayed In Your Home.

I Invite You To Immerse Yourself In The Images And Explore Them As If You Were There Yourself.

Scott Wardwell

A Little Background

South Branch is a small lake in central Maine nestled between Howland and Lincoln that has been my fortune to call my summer home since the mid-seventies.  Sparsely populated and relatively untouched by the rampant development that has sadly afflicted many lakes in Maine; it is a wonder unto itself.  Coupled with my life-long passion for photography,  I have amassed a sizable body-of-work of the lake.  Sunrises, sunsets, storms, eclipses, wildlife and the night skies are regular subjects.

In the twilight years of my career as an accountant in the Greater Bangor area, my photography has become a singular obsession.

Years of dedicated work have resulted in a series of solo exhibitions at the Cianchette Building in Brewer and one at the Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor. In 2015, I was invited to open a solo exhibition in the Robert E. White Art Gallery at Husson University.

I was first published in “Echoes Magazine” starting in 2007 and most recently the July 2016 issue cover and back page. The Bangor Metro published some of my work from my time at the Cianbro Yard and the Motiva refinery project.

For many years, I volunteered my photographic skills to the annual "Komen Race for the Cure" in Bangor and Portland documenting the race day activities for the local affiliate.  My images were used on their website, in promotional literature and made available to race participants when requested.

With this website,  I hope to broaden the audience for my work.  To this end, they are illustrated as fine-art photographs for any space you desire.
