Putney Public Library exhibits ‘Domestic Pleasures, Photographs by Lynne Weinstein’

"Domestic Pleasures," a series of black and white photographs by Lynne Weinstein, is on exhibit at the Putney Public Library through June 1.

Weinstein is a teacher and photographer whose work has been supported by the Vermont Arts Council and the Vermont Community Foundation Arts Fund. Before teaching at The Putney School, Lynne was a long-time volunteer at In-Sight Photography Project and the Vermont Center for Photography in Brattleboro.

Before moving to Vermont, she worked as a photo editor at Life magazine and as a freelance editorial photographer. She has experimented with many formats including alternative processes, 4 x 5 cameras, and iPhones.

Weinstein, who lives in Putney, said in a news release that "'Domestic Pleasures' grew out of my interest in chores and their enduring presence in our lives. I wanted to investigate how I could transform mundane work into moments of beauty. It was both a mindfulness activity of finding wonder and a formal exercise in building strong compositions with the help of natural light. Each image is a self-portrait shot on 4 x 5 film and printed on silver gelatin paper."

The show is free at Putney Public Library, 55 Main St. The library is open Monday through Friday, 10:30 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. (10 a.m. to 1 p.m, from April to October).
