LITCH­FIELD » Anita Gar­nett’s pho­tog­ra­phy show, “Se­crets Ob­jects Share” opens with a re­cep­tion at the Oliver Wol­cott Li­brary, 160 South St., Lith­field, on Thurs­day, Sept. 7 from 5-7 p.m. The show runs through Oct. 26.

Gar­nett’s mis­sion as a pho­tog­ra­pher is to cap­ture the beauty, sen­si­tiv­ity and hu­man­ity of her sub­jects. The im­ages are un­fet­tered by back­ground and by iso­lat­ing them, their form and their sin­gu­lar­ity can be fur­ther ob­served.

Photo es­says in­volv­ing peo­ple in­trigue her and a por­tion of her ex­hibit will in­clude photo-

graphic por­traits of el­ders who share, in one sen­tence, what they have learned after all these years. Gar­nett says she hopes all who view the ex­hibit will add their thoughts on what they’ve learned.

Gar­nett par­tic­i­pates in solo and group ex­hi­bi­tions in galleries. Among her nu­mer­ous awards are Grand Prize In­ter­na­tional Win­ner

of the Faces of El­ders Con­test for Apogee Photo Magazine and Ko­dak In­ter­na­tional News­pa­per Awards Con­test Fi­nal­ist.

To­day she is a free­lance pho­tog­ra­pher for the Reg­is­ter Cit­i­zen news­pa­per where she cap­tures peo­ple en­joy­ing pa­rades, fairs and fun events through­out Litch­field County.
