For several years, acclaimed photographer Maura McEvoy and art director Basha Burwell travelled the length and breadth of Maine in search of houses that capture the state’s singular character. These are not designer houses; they are homes created by the people who live in them, from artists to writers to fishermen, distinctive for their ingenuity, originality, and fierce individuality. Many are unchanged, inhabited by generations of the same family; some are ingenious conversions. These are homes that have a kind of visual wealth that money can’t buy, homes that define the very spirit of Maine.
