Olson House Portfolio
The Olson House in Cushing Maine is classic vernacular architecture: an American farmhouse expanded and changed over its many years of being lived in. Between 1939-1968 its occupants, Christina and her brother Alvaro, as well as the house itself became the focus of a large body of work by Andrew Wyeth. His drawings and paintings of the house, its environs, and its owners capture what many of us to think of as the quintessential Maine.
Even after twenty years of photographing in and around the Olson House I continue to be drawn to photograph here time and again. These images were made with a variety of large format and pinhole cameras. The large windows in this house provide a wonderful play of light and shadow. Single objects become iconic within the emptiness of the house.
