Photographer Eileen Hohmuth-Lemonick will show Darkness Illuminated, a collection of photos from early in her career, in the Walton Lobby beginning Monday, December 4, 2017 through Thursday, February 8, 2018.
“I specialize in documentary and portrait photography. This exhibit focuses on an early project about blindness. Sight is so important to me as a photographer, so I wanted to see what life would be like for those who cannot see. I documented the experience of blindness all over the world, traveling to China, Guatemala, Mexico, the Czech Republic, Bulgaria, Armenia, Zimbabwe, Nepal, India, and the Brazilian Amazon to show how the sightless live in very different kinds of society,” said Eileen.
Eileen teaches photography at Princeton Day School in Princeton, New Jersey. She was previously named Photography Teacher of the Year by Maine Media Workshops.
