Barbra O'Boyle has always loved the magic of photography as she is constantly looking for the little "secret nooks and crannies of beauty" within a town, capturing what most may drive by and miss. "Photography is one essential part of capturing the beauty in people, of places, and things – in essence, to capture a moment in time that will never be relived again, yet will last forever in a photograph,: said O'Boyle.
O'Boyle has been covering Somers community news since she moved to the quaint little town in 2004. Primarily writing and photographing the local events for the ReminderNews in the Enfield edition.
Her photography career has spanned decades, beginning with contributing freelance photos to "Wildlife and Stream Magazine" in 1979 while she attended college in Iowa.
Her time spent as a photographer for "Life Magazine," from 1981 to 1983, was an experience she will never forget. She travelled to 42 different states and nine countries within 20 months.
O'Boyle's pictures have won several awards including the Piedmont Award in 2006 along with the Mario de Salvio Award for Excellence in Art in 2010.
"I love meeting the people and telling their story, and I'm grateful to get back into something I love," said O'Boyle.
