Photographer Joel Rhymer
Featured Artist for July and August
"Personal Times" is a collection of recent photographs by Freedom photographer Joel Rhymer currently on display at the Freedom Public Library. Taken from a series of personal projects which Rhymer has pursued over the past few years, the works are a collection of some local landscapes, some thought-provoking documentary photos, and several candid "street" photographs that tell compelling stories. Rhymer includes narratives with many of the pieces to help the viewer understand the meaning and his personal connection to the photographs. The show is on display during July and August.
