Photographer J.K. Putnam will give a talk at the Southwest Harbor Public Library, Wednesday evening, January 11, 6:00. Featuring images from his childhood through his current work photographing the scenic landscapes of Acadia, Putnam will present a personal and retrospective slideshow demonstrating the power a photograph has to seed memory, invoke emotion, and tell a story, no matter the camera used to capture it.
