Brunswick, Maine photographer Benjamin Williamson isn't your traditional landscape photographer. Instead of seeking places devoid of human presence, Ben likes to showcase our relationship to the environment through images that include man-made objects. A lifelong love of history and the weather have combined in images that feature classic Maine and New England scenery in beautiful light and unusual conditions. As you can see from his galleries, Ben prefers to do his work when most people stay away, during the off-season of winter along the coast and during inclement weather.

Benjamin Williamson's images have been featured in galleries, magazines, book, calendars, and more. He primarily works around his home in Brunswick, focusing on the coastal character of neighboring Harpswell and communities and landmarks up and down the coast. Lighthouses hold a special attraction, along with boats, trees, harbors, and historic architecture.

From the artist, "I love the idea of discovering the 'roots' of a place. Natural wonders stand beside man-made landmarks to captivate my imagination and inspire me to capture them. Through me you will see a world idealized and distilled into mostly simple scenes. My aim is to inspire hope and wonder, not to bring you down with the shortcomings of our social and political lives. I'll leave that important role to others. Come with me and see the world how I see it."
