Overview

Portland, Maine, "the beautiful town seated by the sea" celebrated by poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, is the home of photographer William Hubbell. His sharp eye and friendly lens have captured this vibrant city's many contrasts, the happy products of 370 years of history. In Hubbell's Portland we find the quaint and the ultramodern, the gritty working port and the thriving arts community. Here a city works hard for a living; here its people enjoy leisure and good times. Tourists prowl scenic Old Port within sight of oil tankers and island commuters. Fishing boats bob in the shadow of high rises housing twenty-first-century enterprises. William Hubbell's affection for Portland, from its center to its neighborhoods and even its farmlands, is clear on every page of this tribute to Maine's largest city.
