During his teenage years, John Dunn had developed a fascination for a relatively new technology: photography.

He documented his hunting and fishing trips to Maine using a bulky Graflex box camera and a heavy wooden tripod.

Dunn, with the help of guides, carried the cumbersome equipment to even the most remote and inaccessible areas.
