A photographer for more than 40 years, Dan Tobyne is an artist member of the Marblehead Arts Association and a member of the Griffin Museum in Winchester, Massachusetts. His work is on display in public and private collections throughout New England and is featured in the books Boston’s Emerald Necklace and Thoreau’s Cape Cod.

Beginning in 1847, Henry David Thoreau made three trips to the mostly unexplored Maine woods. Along the way he recorded his observations in The Maine Woods, his best-selling book after Walden. At the heart of his writing are the recurring questions of man’s place in nature. In Thoreau’s Maine Woods, Tobyne captures the essence of the Maine that Thoreau discovered and described. The timeless words of Thoreau combine with inspiring images to celebrate the enduring beauty and appeal of the Maine wilderness.
