Ed Monnelly has photographed in Acadia National Park for a number of years. Living in Ipswich, MA, he makes frequent trips to the park in all seasons. He uses both large format film cameras and, more recently, digital capture. His work has appeared in several national publications for the Sierra Club, National Audubon, and the Nature Conservancy. He has exhibited in galleries in the Northeast as well as in California and Hawaii. Currently he is showing at the Gallery at Somes Sound in Somesville, ME. He contributes frequently to art shows to benefit conservation organizations including the Friends of Acadia benefit auction. His work can also be seen at his website www.edmonnelly.com.
In celebration of the 100th anniversary of the park, Ed has produced posters of iconic park images including the summit of Cadillac mountain, the seascape between Thunder Hole and Otter Cliffs, and the park’s fall foliage. The posters are on sale at Acadia Park Company and The Acadia Shop, both on Main Street in Bar Harbor, and at the Jordan Pond House Gift Shop. In support of the park, all proceeds net of expenses will be gifted to the Friends of Acadia in support of their projects.
