Photographic Images of Nature

White Mountains Community College
Fortier Library

The White Mountains Community College Fortier Library will present a collection of black & white nature photographs on exhibit by photographer Frank Kazmerek of Lyman.

Kazmerek’s photographs have been published in a variety of periodicals including Nature's Best Magazine, B&W Magazine, Sierra Magazine, National Wildlife, Nature Photographer, Nature Conservancy, Northern Woodlands, Outdoor and Travel Photography, Birder's World, Country Life, National Fisherman, The Plant Cell and Peterson's Photographic, and have also appeared in various calendars, textbooks and in a number of photo books including Charles W.G. Smith's "Fall Foliage: The Mystery, Science and Folklore of Autumn Leaves."

In addition, Kazmerek has written and illustrated a Falcon Book field guide titled "New England Wildflowers: A Guide to Common Plants," published in 2009 by Globe-Pequot Press.

Prints of his photographic images have been exhibited in art galleries and businesses in the New England area and Washington, D.C. He continues to favor and use film and traditional "chemical" prints over digital capture and inkjet prints.

Kazmerek is a retired research biologist currently working as an adjunct instructor at the White Mountains Community College’s Littleton campus. In addition, he operates as a freelance nature photographer based in Lyman.

The Fortier Library is open from 7:30 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday-Thursday, and  8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Friday; the public is invited. For more information, call (603) 342-3087. Artists interested in exhibiting two-dimentional wall art are welcome to contact the library.
