“Marge Agin visually expresses the exuberance of the Bluffton area and the Lowcountry in her art photography. Fresh, lively and colorful, this new book captures the spirit of the “Bluffton State of Mind” for all to enjoy.” -Lydia Inglett, founder and publisher, Starbooks


Marge Agin has traveled the world taking photographs and now calls Bluffton, South Carolina, and the Lowcountry her home. Using her camera to take the original photographs, Agin then enhances them with modern techniques, combining both her photographic knowledge and her artistic talent to produce strong, bright images evoking the feelings she has for the environment.

"Photography has always been my passion. My photographs are unique because what I see through the camera is just the first step. When you look at my photographs, you are lookings at them, through the lens of my imagination."

Bluffton State of Mind is Marge Agin’s fourth book. Her first book, Palmetto Bluff was followed by Bluffton,Changing Tides and What It Means To Be Here.
