Artist of the Month
The walls of Burlap and Bean are currently
featuring the work of Roger Hammons.
The “Acadia Wood | Stone | Water” photographs by Roger Hammons present diverse elements of the Maine landscapes near Acadia National Park. They are intended as a meditation on the vibrant, rugged, tranquil, and non-tranquil forms found there.
Roger is a full-time professional photographer living in Ashburn, Virginia. Turning pro in 2005, Roger was certified by the Professional Photographers of America (PPA) as a Certified Professional Photographer in 2006. In 2010, he was recognized as a PPA Master Photographer, the organization’s highest honor.
