6/30/2014 - Agawam Public Art Displays for the Month of June

PRESS RELEASE

JUNE 2014

For the month of June, the Agawam Public Library will be showcasing on the Gallery Walls the photographs of Sean Leahy. 

 Sean Leahy grew up in Connecticut and has been a resident of Agawam for fifteen years.  He has always loved taking photos even as a child.  Sean would always have his camera ready with him to capture images of something interesting.  He would have piles of pictures in his house, and people would come and ask him when or where he took each one.

 Two years ago Sean’s wife died suddenly.  Her death deeply affected him.   It was suggested that he go on a quest to help him.

 Sean loves taking photos of birds.  They are so many different kinds, and they live in many different places.  He has been traveling all over New England taking photos of different birds. The photos that he will be bringing are birds of Western Massachusetts.  Taking photos of birds and other wildlife is something that he enjoys, and he hopes that it is something he can pass along to others.
