The Salt Institute for Documentary Studies Presents

Stories and Images from Maine

Featuring Salt Student Graduates
Curated by The Salt Institute

For forty years, Salt students have been documenting the people and places of Maine through images, sound, writing and now multimedia. Featured here are engaging images and multimedia pieces that represent the depth of storytelling and technical artistry of our students as well as the wide variety of stories that they have found.

The Salt Institute is a non-profit school in Portland, Maine offering semester-long intensive programs in documentary writing, radio, photography and multimedia with a focus on powerful and ethical storytelling.

Simply put, our mission is to educate and promote documentary storytellers.

We also exhibit documentary work in our gallery and host documentary-related events.
