Dennis Hughes to give “Amish in Focus: Photos and Stories” lecture at Elizabeth College, March 12 2015

 

Lecture -“Amish in Focus: Photos and Stories”

Professional photographer Dennis Hughes of East Petersburg, Pa., has been taking pictures of the Amish and other Plain groups since 1986. His 18,000 wide-ranging images were taken in Pennsylvania and other states and illustrate his sensitivity and respect for Amish people and their way of life. Hughes’ photographs have appeared in various publications, including those of Young Center scholars. He will show some of his photos and tell behind-the-scene stories related to them. A reception honoring Hughes for the generous contribution of his slides to the Hess Archives and Special Collections will follow the program.

Cost: free
