“Portland: City By the Sea” celebrates Portland, Maine, through the lens and imagination of photographer and city resident William Hubbell. Hubbell’s sharp eye captures this vibrant and historic waterfront city’s many contrasts: the quaint and the ultramodern, the gritty working port and the thriving arts community.
Tourists prowl scenic Old Port within sight of oil tankers and island commuters. Fishing boats bob in the shadow of highrises housing 21st-century enterprises. Hubbell’s affection for Portland, from its center to its neighborhoods and even its farmlands, is clear on every page of this tribute to Maine’s largest city.
