Shane Charles took two color photographs with his then 4-year-old daughter on Halloween night, 2020 from Crescent Beach in Cape Elizabeth, Maine. A record of the rare Blue Hunter’s Moon - as it is every 19-years in Metonic cycle. When the Blue Hunter’s Moon occurs again, Charles’ daughter will be 23 years old.
The analog prints with archival characteristics were developed and printed using the increasingly rare and unique Cibachrome (also know as Ilfochrome) technique.
Shane Charles is a direct descendent of the Penobscot Nation and is also of (colonial) British ancestry. His grandfather was a mapmaker and his father was the Penobscot tribal surveyor. From this lineage, Charles’ narrative, which includes generational fracture and psycho-geography, is one of place and remembrance.
