Going By


This photograph by world-renowned Maine photographer Peter Ralston is available here as a Limited Edition fine art print. Limited to just 50 prints plus 10 artist proofs, each one is printed on archival rag paper, and is signed and numbered by the artist.

In Peter’s own words, here is the story of Going By:

Bearing witness to the end of a once thriving saltwater farm is a sad undertaking, yet sometimes one can do little but observe.

I was walking around the great old place, awaiting a good composition, when along came the two sheep and one goat. A couple of exposures and that was it.

The old New England expression for a place or person, or most anything in this sort of disrepair and decrepitude is gone by, or, going by. Thus, especially with the animals passing in front of me, the title is a no-brainer.

When my mother first saw this photograph her immediate response was, “My God, it’s the three of you,” referring to myself, the black sheep in the lead, and my two younger brothers following behind. Some things we never live down.
