NH Now

October 1, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

“NH NOW” is a two-year project to photographically record life in New Hampshire. 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 documents 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.

Fifty photographs will be on view at the Historical Society of Cheshire County including many Monadnock region photographs as well as works from other regions of New Hampshire. Cheshire County’s photographic artist, Medora Hebert, is highlighted in the show. The project director is the seventh NH Artist Laureate, Gary Samson.
