Artist: Janet Hamilton
Portraits of Piermonters in the 1970’s and 1980’s
Photographer Janet Hamilton, an elementary school teacher by profession, has been a resident of Piermont since 1970, before recently moving to Kendal in Hanover, New Hampshire. Janet had no formal training in photography. She said that photography is strictly an avocation for her. She also explained that she photographed her subjects in a natural setting without lights.
“I personally knew all the Piermonters I photographed and knew that they are valuable to the Town. I loved photographing them – it was a joy for me.”
