Photographer Harlan Crichton, whose work is part of the current “Far Up Close” exhibit, will give a talk about his past and current photographic projects Wednesday, May 27, at 7 p.m. at Waterfall Arts, 256 High St.

Crichton, who grew up in Liberty and now lives in Moscow, Idaho, graduated from the Maine College of Art in 2012. His projects include a series of portraits of veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, street people, boxers and rural Americans. Admission is by donations at the door.

The “Far Up Close” exhibit is part of the 2015 Maine Photo Project, a statewide collaboration among museums, galleries, historical societies and other nonprofit cultural organizations across the state. The project is organized by the Maine Curators’ Forum. For more information, visit.mainephotoproject.org.

The exhibit is supported in part by the Maine Arts Commission, an independent state agency supported by the National Endowment for the Arts, and yearlong business sponsor, Revision Energy.
