The Beginning


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 The Beginning:

On the morning I made this photograph, I was over on the high western shore of the harbor. It was unusually silent, and then I heard the muted drone of a boat coming out of the inner harbor.

I simply waited a few minutes, and that was that, the first boat out at the beginning of another day’s hauling.

But more than that, it was the beginning of the day in which two good friends were to marry. It was the beginning of their marital passage through life. It all felt very special and this image became, of course, their wedding present.

And the bride is now a mother, and she helps me with design work, and her beautiful little daughter plays on the floor of my studio office and I love it all and it all seems just perfect. Because it is.
