April 5—May 31
The University Museum is sponsoring a photography exhibition on the cultural, ethnic, and religious diversity of the Granite State. The exhibition features the work of New Hampshire photographer Becky Field, who has been documenting the lives of the state’s immigrant and refugee families since 2012.
In a state known for low cultural diversity, Field uses her camera to illustrate and celebrate the lives of new Americans. She has been welcomed into homes of recent immigrants and refugees and has photographed traditional and sacred ceremonies. A book of her photographs, Different Roots, Common Dreams: New Hampshire’s Cultural Diversity, has won two national awards.
Thursday, April 12, 5-7 p.m.
University Museum, Dimond Library
Field will discuss her work, and the Himalayan Heritage Music Group will play traditional South Asian music. The event is free and open to the public.
