Fog & Ice Speaker Series – Fog in the Penobscot Marine Museum Photo Archives
February 9 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm$5
It will come as no surprise that Maine is one of the foggiest states in the country. In fact, Mistake Island, off of Jonesport, is the 5th foggiest spot in the US, with more than 1,600 hours of fog per year. The science of fog states it forms when two ground level air masses meet and condense to form a low-lying cloud. It’s not the science of fog, however, that draws photographers and painters to it, but rather the aesthetic it creates. Fog can create a moody atmosphere, an air of mystery, accentuate form and give depth to a composition. Photo Archivist, Kevin Johnson will explore this photographic element and share photographs depicting it from the PMM photography archive. Register at Tiny.one/FogIce
