Peter Felsenthal

Photographer and author Peter Felsenthal has been taking pictures since the days of Kodak box cameras. Since moving to Maine he has had the ability to spend full time pursuing his new career. Originally trained in physics he has always written and photographed as an avocation. Pursuing photography with the aid of some professional training has led to a passion for story telling and writing about subjects he cares deeply about. His interest in organic farming and green approaches to modern life have coincided with the ability to use the traditional media, a book, as a means of communicating the passion and hard work that goes into a present day organic farm.

The book -- New Growth: Portraits of Six Maine Organic Farms -- has been awarded first place for the best Gift Book of the year by the Independent Book Publishers Association and has been nominated a finalist in the  CoffeeTableBook/Photography category and a finalist in the regional non Fiction category by the Next Generation Book awards organization. Peter has also authored a book of poetry published by Blackberry Press.

Come meet Peter Felsenthal at Books in Boothbay on July 11!
