An Eye for the Coast : The Maritime and Monhegan Island Photographs of Eric Hudson
"Unless you reach for the Dramamine at the first mention of salt water, the maritime photographs of Elmer Forest ("Eric") Hudson (1862-1932) will hit you like an onshore breeze on a summer shore. ... The prints are all velvety grays and blacks of a kind impossible to coax from thirty-five millimeter film, and the extensive captions comprise histories of Monhegan, the nineteenth-century seaborne trade in fish, salt, ice, lumber, and molasses, and finally, the great diversity of wooden boats involved." --Antiques magazine (1998)
