Join Samantha Appleton at the Rockport Opera House Monday, August 27th, at 7:30pm.
A native of Camden, Maine, photographer Samantha Appleton covered the war in Iraq for much of the first three years. Most of her work there concentrated on Iraqi civilians. She began covering the U.S. presidential campaign in early 2007 for the New Yorker magazine, and became an Official White House Photographer at the start of the Obama administration. She served in that capacity for the next 2½ years.
For Appleton, these two profoundly different experiences were merely different sides of the vortex of modern history. The images she created reflect each other rather than contrast each other. Here From There, like the idiosyncratic Maine saying, “You can’t get there from here,” suggests that to make a line, you must make a circle.
HERE FROM THERE: PHOTOGRAPHS BY SAMANTHA APPLETON will be on display at the CMCA from August 4th - September 22nd with an opening reception Saturday, July 14 from 4-6pm. The Exhibition is sponsored by A.E. Sampson & Son
