“Catching the Eye: Photographs by Rosamond Orford” will be on display from July 1 through August 31 in the Library’s community room.
Rosamond Orford is a local photographer who has lived in Norwich since 1968. For some 30 years her Upcountry photographic postcards and notecards were familiar to many in Vermont, New Hampshire and beyond. She also published a book of her photographs, Water Colours, which capture images of what is impermanent: the effect of light on water, with its many reflections, patterns and rhythms. Largely self-taught, she has taken classes with Ernst Haas and Sam Abell, both great teachers as well as photographers, that were influential.
The following quote from Henry David Thoreau: “How much of beauty – of color as well as form – on which our eyes daily rest goes unperceived by us” will give a clue as to her aspirations. Landscapes, patterns, moods and colours in nature and most specially water in all its forms continue to be a source of fascination.
Catching the Eye will on view at the Norwich Public Library from July 1 – August 31, 2019. An opening reception is scheduled for Friday, August 2 from 4:00 – 6:00 pm.
