These images are part of an ongoing series that I have been working on for around three years. I have walked the streets of Portland, Maine from sun-up to sundown and through all hours of the night. I capture the often overlooked, (or even when seen, still ignored) grittier side of American small-city life.  These images were originally included in a self-published, limited edition 'zine entitled "Brick Work", though the making of photographs continues with the intent to create a fine art book in the future.
