Media advance Kelley’s photo archiving project
Seacoastonline.com, the Saco Bay News and the Machias Valley News Observer shared a University of Maine media release about Joseph Kelley archiving nearly four decades of photos he captured depicting the history and change in Maine landscapes. The professor emeritus of marine geology partnered with the Maine Geological Survey to archive 8,000 of his landscape images, most of which depict the coast, in an online database on the state agency’s website. Users will have access to photos capturing vistas at particular moments in history and time series collections featuring the shifting geology of certain places over time. “On the coast, every photo is a ‘before,’” Kelley says.
