"Photography is a save button for the mind's eye." (Rodger Kingston).
I have been taking photos since the days of flash bulbs, and the Polaroid camera made photography exciting and accessible to all.
A photographer's work has the potential to be as unique as a fingerprint, and as identifiable as a signature. My camera is my constant companion, reminding me to be alert and to pay attention. It allows me to interact with and comment visually on the world as I see it. The digital camera encourages me to push at the edges of my world, to experiment, and to move beyond photo "clichés."
She has had an interesting array of jobs over the years, but has consistently taken photos everywhere she has been. Her images can be seen in her line of photographic note cards available in a number of outlets throughout the Upper Valley and beyond.
She is always delighted to find an uncommon view of everyday things.
I began to take photos in the 1980's when my husband and I started to travel to exotic places. I think that spending 2 and ½ months in Asia made me a more thoughtful photographer. I came home with 1100 photos and have printed 50 of them. In the Serengeti in Tanzania I was struck by the colorful clothing of the Masai against the dry, brown landscape. I find that I can express myself in a deeper way through photography vs. writing. I hope you enjoy seeing my photos in this exhibit.
John Lehet began photographing seriously as a Dartmouth Student in the late 70s, using 4" x 5" film, and studying with Ansel Adams assistant, John Sexton by the early 80s. In more recent years the transition to digital and once again ramping up the time and energy applied to the craft have borne better fruit than early earnest efforts. I'm more happy with my current work than ever.
In Iceland there is a division of the highway department in charge of respecting the fairies associated with the landscape (Huldufólk). The sense of a beyond-human energy in the landscape is that palpable. Considering my approach to photography in part concerns discovering an energetic sense of the world, some kind of bridge between our inner world and the outer manifestation, Iceland was photographic heaven for me.

It was only when I got my first digital camera in 2000 that I started to explore photography as a means of expression as well as documentation. It was liberating to take, view and throw away as many pictures as I liked without wasting film and chemicals. Retirement from science has given me the luxury of time to experiment liberally with the camera. Add to that the power of the computer and the digital image opens into a world of possibilities.
World View's will be exhibited at the Osher office located on 7 Lebanon Street, Suite 107 in Hanover, NH during office hours between October 4 – December 20.
