Local With Joe

Local With Joe

Local With Joe’s mission is to foster connection by promoting a sense of place and all that is local. There is more to being a local than meets the eye. Follow along as we discover what it means to be a local. The Almanac is home to my reviews and reflections, as well as bodies of work that are actively inspiring me.

A Sense of Place showcases writings, reviews, and photography of my journeys locally and abroad. The project will hopefully inspire connection to your local surroundings.

Wigata N’dakinna: Tasty New England, will illustrate the captivating flavor and sights of home. I will be attempting to answer this: what distinctive flavors make up our local culture? It will show that we have much more culture and diversity to represent in the northern parts of New England than we realize. It will also pay respects to the Abenaki people who have called this region home long before anyone else did.

Salt of the Earth is my portrait photo series highlighting locals who have impacted my life and the communities around us. They represent character, grit, hard work, and what it means to be a local.

Selah, will be the home of art and reflections, often in the form of poetry, representing mindfulness. Selah is a Hebrew word that means to pause. It calls us to take the time to reflect upon what we just learned, saw, or heard. I hope you will pause and reflect with these works.

Check out the Viewfinder to see my photography and art that isn’t featured in other bodies of work. Buy Local will be your opportunity to support my art as well as other local items in various forms. You can learn more about me, my passions, and my studies on the Backstory or Portfolio pages.
