Portsmouth NH 400th  in 400 photos

Edited by Karina N. Quintans

400 x 400: Portsmouth NH 400th in 400 Photos showcases the best work of the ten Seacoast photographers who were deployed to cover events and programs during the city’s 400th anniversary.

“I’m so thrilled that we had so much talent to draw on to document this important year. We are so appreciative of these professionals for volunteering their time. After a whirlwind summer of photo-documenting historic events, both large and small, I am struck by how great it’s been to have this team, to collaborate and coordinate around documenting these historic events, to appreciate the artistic perspective we each brought to the project while sharing our work with each other and the public, to talk shop a bit about photography and to get to know and appreciate each other. If you love Portsmouth, this book will be a wonderful keepsake of the key events of the 400th anniversary.”

Karina N. Quintans, who coordinated the photography team for PNH 400
