It is a very nostalgic photograph that while absent of inhabitants alludes to student presence through scuffing on the floor and handwriting on the blackboard."

2014 Photo Contest Winners

“My New England” photo contest can be as individual as a person’s relationship to the region. It may be a stonewall, a meadow of lupines, a seasonal harvest, a visit to a historical house — a visual record that you associate with the New England way of life. New England is landscape and the people who live within the landscape. We want to see photos that capture your personal New England.
