After teaching at Trinity for a decade, Pablo Delano, professor of fine arts, decided to focus seriously on a project he began tentatively much earlier: photographing the built environment of Connecticut’s capital city. The result is an exhibit called Hartford Seen, on display at the Connecticut Historical Society through mid-March.
Additionally, the Connecticut Historical Society featured Delano in a video series called “Conversations with Pablo Delano.” In the series, Delano discusses the challenges and surprises of photographing an urban environment, as well as the opportunities stemming from Hartford’s diversity and history.
Hartford Seen opened earlier in October and runs through March 14, 2015, at the Connecticut Historical Society, located at 1 Elizabeth Street in Hartford. Trinity students are admitted for free with their student IDs.
