Photographer Mark Bannon
Featured Artist for November and DecemberThe exhibit at the Freedom Public Library for November and December features the photography of award winning Mike Bannon of Bartlett. Mike moved to the Valley to ski for a winter season fifty years ago. Those fifty years turned into a lasting love affair with the White Mountains. He realized that the natural beauty was constant changing throughout the day and the season. Light, color, mood and contrast were often fleeting moments that transformed a landscape into extraordinary perfection. His quest became how to get those moments to last. Through his photography, he has sought to capture those moments for all to see. He intends to share with us the unique and special qualities of the White Mountains and their magnificent vistas. This exhibit will be at the library through December 31.
