LEWISTON — The Central Maine Medical Center Woman’s Hospital Association is featuring the work of photographer Roger Belanger at its Rotating Art Gallery at CMMC through Aug. 6.

Belanger is a U.S. Navy veteran who began working as a photographer while serving aboard aircraft carrier U.S.S. Kearsarge during the Vietnam War. He later attended photography school and was assigned to the Combat Camera Group, an elite photography unit. He worked with different branches of the military, photographing military exercises, relief operations and secret military development programs.

He now limits his work primarily to nature. Using a digital camera, he attempts to complete all compositions and corrections at the time of exposure, rather than with computer applications. He attempts to obtain his photos in natural lighting and utilizes the camera to capture the mood he senses from his observations of his subject.

The artwork on display may be purchased through the WHA Gift Shop, located adjacent to the Main Lobby corridor.
