About the Book
Inspired by the Farm Security Administration photography project to document life in America during the Great Depression, the New Hampshire Society of Photographic Artists and the New Hampshire Historical Society joined forces to undertake a three-year project to record daily life in the Granite State. This book is the result of forty-six photographers covering the seven regions of the state, capturing thousands of images that create a twenty-first-century portrait of the people, places, culture, and events in New Hampshire. The body of work created not only illustrates this book but is also featured in eight exhibitions around the state in the fall of 2021 and ultimately archived at the New Hampshire Historical Society in Concord, New Hampshire. The following institutions made this project possible: the Belknap Mill Society; the Davidow Center for Art and Design, Colby Sawyer College; the Historical Society of Cheshire County; the Millyard Museum, Manchester Historic Association; the Museum of the White Mountains, Plymouth State University; the New Hampshire Historical Society; the New Hampshire Society of Photographic Artists; the Portsmouth Historical Society; and the Tillotson Center. Peter E. Randall Publisher is pleased to provide design and project management for this title.
