Inspired by Peaks Island’s rich history and conversations with those whom islanders lovingly refer to as old timers, Fran Houston contacted many long time island residents, photographed and interviewed them, and collected their stories.  Her sensitive portraits draw out the essence of individual personalities; the twinkle of an eye, a distant thought, dignity, joy and memory.

She said, “My hope is to capture the heart, history, and humor of those that have resided here, weaving a rich tapestry of which we have been the beneficiaries.”
