Paul Cyr releases new photography book
PRESQUE ISLE, Maine — Photographer Paul Cyr has released his new book, “Northern Maine with Paul Cyr.”
The book represents a small sampling of some of the best moments Cyr has captured over the past 15 years while visiting the people, places and things he enjoys the most.
“I have had inquiries through the years but the requests last winter mostly from Facebook friends increased significantly, sometimes twice a day,” said Cyr about his decision to publish the book. “I hope all those people come around again.”
Cyr shares his work with over 30,000 followers on Facebook at Paul Cyr Photography. His inventory of photographs numbers in the thousands, and dozens of northern Maine towns and businesses use his images for websites, report covers and tourist guides.
Designed by local graphic designer Theresa Mosher, the 128-page, hardcover book contains 450 of Cyr’s photographs. “Northern Maine with Paul Cyr” sells for $29.95 and is available at several area retailers as well as online at www.moshermultimedia.com.
People may also find Cyr’s photographs featured prominently in local newspapers, the Bangor Daily News, as well as Barcroft Media (London), Mirror (London), Boston Globe, Yankee and DownEast magazines and more.
His work has been featured twice on WCSH News Center’s Bill Green’s Maine show.
Down East Books recently published two books exclusively featuring Cyr’s photographs: “Uses for Mooses” (2017) and “Bears Behaving Badly” (2016), and included Cyr’s photographs in “Maine Life in a Day” (2017). In 2014, Cyr and local author Dottie Hutchins published ACADIAN ROOTS: Images of the St. John Valley to commemorate the World Acadian Congress. All can be found at www.amazon.com.
