Guy Shorey: Among the White Hills



Guy Shorey was a preeminent photographer in New Hampshire’s North Country in the first half of the twentieth century. This exhibition explores Shorey in his various roles: as an observer of his own life and the life of his community at work and at play; as an entrepreneur, using the attraction of the local photograph to provide a livelihood and to encourage visitation to his beloved Gorham and Randolph; and as an artist, whose sense of place and affection for the White Mountains was mirrored in his images and was evident in the Shorey Studio’s tagline, “Among the White Hills.”
