DESCRIPTION

Photographer Samantha Appleton, whose work comprises the exhibition Here From There, covered the war in Iraq for three years. After that, she covered the last U.S. presidential campaign for the New Yorker magazine and then became an Official White House Photographer for the Obama administration. For Camden, Maine, native Appleton, these profoundly different experiences were merely different sides of the vortex of modern history, and the images she created reflect rather than contrast each other. This exhibition suggests that to make a line, you must make a circle -- like the idiosyncratic Maine saying, "You can't get there from here."
