Photography by UNH Alum on Display in Dimond

Posted February 17, 2017

Level 3, Dimond Library

After graduating from UNH in 1965 with a degree in art, Charter Weeks attended Rhode Island School of Design and studied with renowned photographer Harry Callahan. Weeks describes the photographer’s experience as “seeing things in isolation from the surrounding ‘noise’ of the world.”

His work usually focuses on documentary projects, but his eye for color and form is well represented in the selection of UNH photos currently on view in Dimond:

Recently, I spent days wandering around campus photographing a place that has become unfamiliar to me. I was quite fascinated by the range of architecture and other design elements that, in isolation, are nearly painterly in their presentation.

The exhibit will be on display through Summer 2017.
