Recent* photographs of Linda Claff and David Rheubottom will be on display in the Daniels Room of the Hancock Town Library in Hancock New Hampshire from May 14 through June 23. The opening reception will be Saturday, May 14 from 2:00 to 4:00 and both photographers will be available to answer questions about their work.

Linda and David work with black and white film and they use both medium- and large-format cameras. The photographs on display are all silver gelatin prints, created in their darkroom.* Linda enjoys working with everyday objects, focusing in closely to render them nearly abstract, often using high contrast to dramatic effect.* David’s images are mainly landscapes of New England, the Southwest, and Great Britain.

David has studied at the New England School of Photography and both he and Linda have taken classes with master photographers Bruce Barnbaum, Don Kirby, Michael Smith and Paula Chamlee. Their work has been exhibited at the Sharon Arts Center, in Exeter with the New England Society for Photographic Artists,* at the Hancock Library, and other venues.

The Claff/Rheubottom collection can be viewed during regular library hours: Monday and Wednesday, 2:00 pm – 6:00 pm; Tuesday and Thursday, 10:00 am – 7:00 pm; Saturday, 10:00 am – 4:00 pm; closed Friday and Sunday.
