It is about what happens over time to the land we live on that creates the spirit and soul of a place. This photographic exhibition and documentary video features ten Maine women who have lived most of their lives on the land. Much of their livelihood has come from the land either by producing a product or building a community. The stories these remarkable women share through this exhibition and accompanying DVD have a common thread in their sense of community and legacy of family traditions of work. It is my objective to bring to a broader audience these women's joys and satisfaction that have come from a life lived on and from the land.
