NOTE DE L'ÉDITEUR : The rugged beauty of Monhegan Island has attracted artists since the 1850s, but it also caught the eye of photographers, who began recording their impressions of island life in the 1890s. One of the first — and most gifted — was Eric Hudson.

Born in Boston in 1862, Hudson emerged as a talented painter in his twenties. Like many late-nineteenth-century artists, he developed a keen interest in photography, both as a means of capturing images upon which to base canvases and for its own aesthetic value. The ruling passion of Hudson's art was the sea, which led him to sail the New England coast in the 1880s and '90s in search of subject matter for paintings and photographs. […]

While sailing to Mount Desert in 1897, Hudson discovered Monhegan and was so captivated by the island that he returned in 1898 to build a cottage, which served as his summer residence and studio until his death in 1932. Seeking to gain an intimate knowledge of his newfound home, Hudson energetically pursued photographing every aspect of Monhegan in the late 1890s : fishermen engaged in each phase of their work, the weather-beaten fish houses on the waterfront, the village homes and summer boardinghouses, the majestic cliffs of the outer island, and the busy harbor.
