Capturing Our Worlds: Works by the Springfield Photographic Society

June 26, 2021–June 26, 2022 D'Amour Museum of Fine Arts » First Floor » Community Gallery

Featuring over thirty works by members of the Springfield Photographic Society, an organization of local photographers, this exhibition highlights diverse approaches to capturing the world in which we live. From landscapes that depict locales from Western Massachusetts to Vietnam, to botanical photographs and scenes of people living their lives, the works on view explore nature, humanity, beauty, and form.  While each image is shaped by the photographer’s unique vision, the grouping emphasizes photography’s power to transcend borders and languages, and to highlight our universal commonality.

Based in Springfield, Massachusetts, the Springfield Photographic Society is an organization comprised of photographers working at all experience levels. Through exhibitions, field trips, and educational experiences, members hone their craft in the company of fellow enthusiasts.
