After reading An Eye for the Coast, I was touched by this man Eric Hudson, who was also in the photograph we discussed last time. He loved Monhegan so much that he spent a long time on the island, drawing, photographing, and observing. Monhegan was a place for him, not only because of his emotional attachment to the island, but also because he understood the community on the island, and was somehow, a part of it. I realized his understanding of the community when I read the analysis of his photo captured a gathering of fishermen and his children at Fish Beach (Hudson.158). The photo not only shows a traditional meeting of the fishermen, but also indicates an unusual “non-structural interaction” between adults and children. I would say, this photo is more concentrate on a landscape instead of people themselves. Landscape can be the harmony of human and nature (Meinig.46). Fishing in the sea is group work, fishermen had to face the dangers and challenges of nature together in a single vessel, and this is how the close relationship among them was constructed. Their long-time work also directed to the fact that their children were brought up together by the whole village, and that’s the reason why the scene of children intermingling with adults appeared on the photo. The environment shaped part of the fishermen’s personalities, and also influenced their small society. This is how nature and human together formed this island, and why I am impressed by Eric Hudson for capturing this fact by his photos and drawings.
