Directions | Press Release
Author and fine art photographer Xiomaro will be presenting an illustrated talk about his photo/history book Weir Farm National Historic Site (Arcadia Publishing) on Wednesday, November 13, 7:30 pm, for the Patchogue Arts Council Photographers Group at the Brickhouse Brewery in Patchogue, Long Island. The book features his fine art photography and is the first to tell the story of the historic site’s rescue from residential development to its establishment as a national park. The foreword was written by Senator Joseph I. Lieberman who introduced legislation in 1990 to federally protect Weir Farm. The book also celebrates Weir Farm as Connecticut’s first national park, which will be commemorated on the reverse of the 2020 US quarter. The author will give an overview of his work – which ranges from other National Park sites to street photography – as well as his smartphone workshops, upcoming books, and other projects. Signed copies of the book will be available for purchase.
