Healing in Color Gallery
A Franco-American’s View of Europe
The FAC is thrilled to announce a photography exhibit by our very own Board of Trustees president, M. Maurice Demers.
Maurice has had a lifelong love affair with cameras. He studied photo printing in the Army. Progressed to mail order photography courses. And finally took the plunge and completed a 4 year Certificate in Photography at the New Hampshire Institute of Art in 2010. There he studied under the current New Hampshire Artist Laureate, the famed Gary Samson.
Maurice likes to bring out the not so obvious in the world around us. Hence you will often see details of larger images in his work. For instance, you will see in this exhibit a detail of the Roman Coliseum revealing shapes enhanced by the late afternoon sun. You will also see the beautiful geometric shapes in the domed ceiling of the Pantheon in Rome. He also likes to bring out the inner workings of human beings as they relate to the world around them. In this exhibit for instance, you will see policewomen interacting with an errant motorist and a Roman man soaking in the sun and absenting himself from any interaction. Do not miss the train station guide earnestly engaging a passenger on the details of his itinerary.

The word “photograph” has its roots in the Greek words for write and light. A photographer writes with light. And that is what Maurice tries to do in his work. Write with light to tell a story. His philosophy is that beauty is all around us, if we but take the time to look for it. In so doing, we begin to appreciate and enjoy the simple things in life. This in turn, can bring the inner calm that we all seek.
Enjoy the show!
