The Lifesaving Station
Photographer: Paula Van Every
Location: Monhegan Island, Maine
Because people have drowned on the rocky coast on the edge of the island, a simple lifesaving station is in place with a float, so that any bystander can try to help someone in danger. It is a somber reminder of the dangers of this beautiful and contemplative place, and the power of the elements.
