Photographs by Ben Roberts and Mike Casey are on display in the main lobby at CMMC, near the 60 High Street entrance.

Roberts, a self-taught photographer and videographer, is a lifelong Mainer who grew up in Fryeburg and Auburn. His photography was featured in the recent production of “Night of the living Deb,” a zombie-themed romantic comedy. His photographs on display at CMMC are of coastal Maine from Camden Harbor to Fort Gorges and Portland Head Light.

He lives in Portland and serves as the founder and director of Photography for Old Port Media Company.

Casey, also a self-taught photographer, grew up in Massachusetts but currently resides in Lewiston. Because he considers himself “quite quaint and old fashioned,” he doesn’t work with digital equipment, but prefers the traditional film process.

“Photography, for me, is form and tone. An inspiring sunset is only inspiring when the image’s form is recognizable and the image’s tones strike you or me as being particular from another image,” Casey said. “Sometimes I shoot what I see immediately — and it doesn’t always turn out good! — or I may take 24 hours to set-up one shot. Most of all I simply like taking a photograph, a moment frozen in time that I can enjoy over and over and hope others do too.”
