Every four years, New Hampshire is invaded by candidates and their campaign organizations, all seeking the favor of voters in the first-in-the-nation presidential primary state. Photographer Roger Goun has spent much of 2015 criss-crossing the state, photographing the candidates as they interact with individual voters. The resulting pictures, by turns funny and earnest, open a window into New Hampshire’s retail political scene, where elections are won and lost one voter at time.
A selection of the best of these images will be on display at the Millspace at the Newmarket Mills, 55 Main St., Newmarket, NH from 16 January to 7 February 2016. The exhibition, which consists of about two dozen large, lovingly produced black and white prints, will be open on weekends and Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.
Please join the photographer at a reception at the Millspace on Friday, 22 January 2016 from 5-8 PM (snow date: Saturday, 23 January). A cash bar and light refreshments will be available.
There is on street parking as well as visitor parking available in the Mills parking lot across the street.
Roger Goun is a recovering software engineer, a political geek, and an obsessed photographer. He lives in Brentwood, NH with his wife Jody, a dog, two horses, and way too many cats.
