October 1, 2021-May 20, 2022. New Hampshire NOW: A Photographic Diary of Life in the Granite State.
Nearly 50 photographers traveled throughout the state between 2018 and 2020, making thousands of images that collectively create a twenty-first-century portrait of the people, places, culture, and events in New Hampshire. This project documented contemporary life in our state, in much the same way that photography projects of the past have done, such as Walker Evans and Dorothea Lange during the Great Depression and Lewis Hines when he visited the mills of Manchester in the early 1900s.
Eight separate exhibitions of photographs from the New Hampshire Now collection opened simultaneously at partnering venues around the state. Fifty photographs were on view at the Historical Society of Cheshire County including many from the Monadnock region.
Other locations included:
- New Hampshire Historical Society, Concord
- Manchester Historic Association
- Museum of the White Mountains, Plymouth State University
- Historical Society of Cheshire County, Keene
- Portsmouth Historical Society/Discover Portsmouth
- Colby-Sawyer College, New London
- Belknap Mill, Laconia
- Tillotson Center, Colebrook
