October Artist in Lobby/Hall - Whitney Boyajian

Whitney Boyajian - October Photography Exhibit

Have you ever touched a zebra? Or watched a lightning storm in the middle of the desert? These are just some of the experiences photographer Whitney Boyajian has captured on her camera.

Whitney has always been interested in photography, along with learning about other cultures. She also enjoys traveling around the world to take one-of-a-kind photographs. Her favorite things to take pictures of are landscapes and animals. Nikon digital-SLR cameras are used to capture her unique images.

She graduated with a degree in Anthropology from Central Connecticut State University. She also traveled to Costa Rica several times and did extensive research there, producing a paper about daily life and culture through photography. In addition, Whitney presented a slideshow to show the Costa Rican community all the hard work her and volunteers did on a service learning project.

Her pictures will be displayed throughout the month of October in the lobby and corridor gallery of the Farmington Library. There will be a reception on Saturday, October 3rd from 2 - 4pm to kick off the exhibit. The reception is free and open to all, refreshments will be served. Kids welcome, as well as any questions. Come see her unique photographs – there’s something for everyone!
