Ray Kwiatkoski Photography Exhibit
New Milford Public Library will host an exhibit of photographs by local artist, Ray Kwiatkoski. Photographer and poet, Ray Kwiatkowski became fascinated by the Litchfield County countryside right after college, when he took a job delivering early morning newspapers. He began taking black-and-white photos of country roads and other rural scenes, discovering new beauty along the way, which became his lifelong pursuit. Later, as a freelance writer, his photos often appeared with the articles he wrote. In 2013, he published “Rural Wealth,” a book of his verses and photos.
“I like to exhibit images that are intended to teach as well as bring insight into what is often just a glance away,” says Kwiatkowski, who was self-taught and influenced by conversations he had with the late photographic artist Donald Bruen. The exhibit is on view during regular library hours.
