Clough Cemetery, Lewiston, Maine

djclough / Other / / 0 Comments

It was an honor to be asked to document the Clough ancestral cemetery in Lewiston, Maine. Tranquil beauty abounds, complemented by shady leaf cover, beautiful stonework from the 19th century, and expansive and well-maintained acreage. Located across the street from the Clough Meeting House, the Clough Cemetery has served generations of the family and the surrounding South Lewiston community since the early 1800s.

djclough / Architectural, News, Other / / 2 Comments

After a year and a half in the making, Homes Down East, Classic Maine Coastal Cottages and Town Houses will be released in November!  The book is written by Earle Shettleworth, Chris Glass and Scott Hanson. The book features fifty-two homes in Maine that were featured in a magazine, Scientific American Building Monthly, over a hundred years ago. Along with artwork, photographs and floor plans that were originally published starting in the late 1800’s, Homes Down East also includes my contemporary photographs of thirty-two of the homes located throughout Maine. Architects represented include John Calvin Stevens, Fred Savage, Antoine Dorticos, George Burnham and Frederick A. Tompson.

Included in this post is a sample available for downloading.  I hope you find it both fascinating and enticing. Homes Down East is available on Amazon here.

Announcement: Tilbury House Book Project

djclough / Architectural, News, Other / / 0 Comments

I am pleased to announce that this spring and summer I have been on assignment traveling across Maine for Tilbury House Publishers for their upcoming 2014 book, Maine Coastal Cottages.  Stay tuned in the weeks ahead for updates from the field.  As Tilbury House explains:

Between the Civil War and World War I, each year the Maine coast attracted thousands of summer tourists to experience its natural beauty, recreational advantages, and social life. By the 1880s some of the more affluent visitors opted to build their own cottages, employing such noted architects as John Calvin Stevens of Portland, Fred Savage of Bar Harbor, and Chapman & Fraser of Boston. While many of these summer homes exemplified the popular Shingle Style, others reflected the picturesque Queen Anne and Tudor Revival tastes.

From 1885 to 1905, the Scientific American Building Monthly published pictures, floor plans, and descriptions of hundreds of stylish American homes to provide inspiration and information to architects, builders, and clients. Among these many designs are fifty in Maine, many of them Shingle Style summer cottages. Maine Coastal Cottages presents these fifty homes to a contemporary audience through reproducing the magazine’s photographic illustrations, floor plans, and descriptions, coupling them with recent photographs by David Clough. Historical and architectural commentary is provided by Maine State Historian Earle G. Shettleworth, Jr., and Architect Christopher Glass. A Spring 2014 publication date is anticipated by Tilbury House, Publishers.

Father and Daughter

djclough / Other / / 0 Comments

Earlier this season my website developer asked me to photograph his daughter, Willow. With the coastal Maine town of Damariscotta as the setting, Pedro and Willow strolled around and the lenses followed and captured. The first two shots were with a Canon EF 100mm f/2.8, the next three were all with a Canon EF 70-200 f/4 IS zoomed to 200mm which accounts for  the compressed look.
