The Towns of Berkshire County: an exhibition by the Springfield Photographic Society at Hosmer Gallery

WHAT: The Towns of Berkshire County: an exhibition by the Springfield Photographic Society
WHEN: July 2-29, 2022
WHERE: Hosmer Gallery at Forbes Library 20 West Street, Northampton

The Towns of Berkshire County is a photographic exhibit featuring one picture from each of the 32 towns in Berkshire County. The images have been provided by 27 members of the Springfield Photographic Society, capturing the uniqueness of the communities, and illustrating their history, culture, public spaces, and natural beauty. Each photographer chose one perspective that they felt was important to understanding their town.

One of the strengths of the exhibit is the large number of contributing photographers - providing a wider range of perspective than what could have been achieved with one or two contributors. In some photos, you will find an icon of that town. In others, there are surprises. Those photographers with a passion for nature found the natural beauty in their assignment. Other photographers wanted to feature historical sites or local businesses.

Our participants have had fun assembling this exhibit, in many cases going to towns they knew little about and talking to the locals about the town and its photo opportunities. We hope that you have fun as well, as you explore The Towns of Berkshire County.
