Terrell S. Lester is a self-taught landscape photographer who first
picked up a camera when he was thirty-two years old. In the early
1980s he began moving around the country, taking pictures wherever
he went, honing his craft. In 1986, during his first trip to Maine,
he visited Deer Isle, and he has lived there ever since. He has
focused his lens exclusively on Maine for the last fifteen years,
and his work is represented in collections around the world and by
galleries throughout the United States. Terrell Lester and his
wife, Ginger, are co-owners of the Terrell S. Lester Gallery in
Deer Isle. This is his first book.
