Gary Briechle releases new book "Maine"
Exactly 6 years after the release of his first monograph, "Photographs", Gary Briechle is releasing a new photo book titled "Maine".
Gary has forged many long-term relationships with the people he has photographed since moving to Maine nearly 20 years ago. This gives his work a peculiar intimacy, as if the pictures were made by a family member.
Gary candidly documents the everyday lives of people in the small towns on the rugged Maine coastline. Most of his work is done within a few miles of his home. The trusting relationship Gary has with his subjects allows him to make particularly poignant, raw and intimate portraits. Read more →

20 Women changing photography
We are very honored to share that fine art photographer and Aspen curator Rebecca Lily was featured in the September/October 2018 issue of Click Magazine as one of 20 women changing photography.
"Strong and searching female perspectives are more important than ever in the global conversation about photography today. We’ve gathered 20 photographers - all women with something significant to say who are creating fresh and game-changing work," say Kendra Okolita (Chairman & Founder) and Sarah Wilkerson (CEO). "For every untold story, there is a female photographer waiting to tell it, but it was important to us that our featured artists not be spotlighted for the magnitude of their online presence. We pointedly wanted to escape the over-inﬂuence of social media in favor of unadulterated talent and clear voices." Read more →
