Iran 1967-1969: David McBride Photographs at Lamson Library through Oct. 7

September 14th, 2011 by Adam

Plymouth, N.H.– Lamson Learning Commons is pleased to present Iran 1967-1969: David McBride Photographs, through October 7 at Lamson Library.

The exhibition presents a series of 28 photographs depicting life in Iran during the late 1960s.

McBride, PSU associate director of admissions, lived in Iran for 12 years. During the first two years he served as a Peace Corps volunteer teaching English-as-a-second language at two middle schools in the northwestern town of Miandoab.

McBride turned to black and white film to capture the essence and personality of ‘the neighborhood’ and its people because of the earth-toned landscape. These photographs are on display near the Lamson Learning Commons Information Desk.

Contact Jen Green at (603) 535-2226 or jwgreen@plymouth.edu for information.
