Photographing areas that are close to home can often yield the best results. Being able to capture different seasons, light and weather is a distinct advantage that the short term traveler doesn’t always experience. This is particularly true with a landscape as varied as New England. A week or even a month doesn’t begin to do justice to the diversity that one can see in this region of the country.
Bruce Magnuson has compiled a selection of his photographs that represent his wanderings around New England in the last few years. Working with a digital SLR camera, he has produced both color and black and white images that capture the variety and beauty of New England.

Bruce resides in Chelmsford with his wife and daughter. He has taken many photography related courses at local institutions including the New England School of Photography, the DeCordova Museum, the Art Institute of Boston and the Cambridge Center for Adult Education. He is a member of a local group of photographers called the Boston Lighters. He is also a member of the Chelmsford Art Society, the Photographic Resource Center at Boston University and the New Hampshire Society of Photographic Artists. This is his second show at the Chelmsford Library.
