    I bought a Ralph Eugene Meatyard book there, one of my favorites. What did you buy there?

    I had the pleasure of meeting Tim many years ago, a true gentleman and a treasure to the traditional photographer.

    Art & Fear, comes to mind along with several Caponigro's and Tice books.

    Tim probably wouldn't mention that he is a fine photographer and I am fortunate to own one on his originals.

    So sorry the age of technology has taken another treasure from us.

    In advance of taking a Chip Forelli landscape workshop, on Chip’s recommendation, I asked Tim for some books that would show me what I might be looking at in the area.

    New England Days, Paul Caponigro, David Godine, Publisher, 2002
    Maine: Porter, Eliot; Little Brown, 1986
    Maine Farm, A Year of Country Life, Joseph & Karlin, Random House,1991
    A Maine Portfollio, Michael Alpert, Center for Maine Contemporary Art, 2004
    Rural Maine, Silber
    Safe Harbor, Exploring Maine’s Sheltered Bays, Coves, and Anchorages;
    William Hubbell, Down East Books, 2003
    Seacoast Maine, People & Places; Dibner & George Tice; Doubleday 1973

    While there he added
    Sammallahti, Pentti; Blue Sky Gallery, 2000
    Sammallahti; Sammallahti, Pentti; Nazraeli Press, 2nd Ed.; 2002
    Crane, Tillman; Structure, Custom and Limited Editions, 2000

    Tim also taught us how to take a trip by reverse example. We live near where he is from in Ohio. I asked how long a drive it would be. He said 15 hours with cat naps in rest stops. My wife, a painter, and I took three days, three museums and six book shops, instead.

    Good interview, and sad to hear that he is closing - I had heard of his shop many times but never made it up there.
