The works of Thomas Gaitley, a Needham-based fine arts photographer who specializes in landscapes, will be on display in Dover starting this month through June in an exhibit that is free and open to the public, according to organizers.

The exhibit will be on display at Dover Town Library from May 25 through June 29.

Gaitley is a juried member of the award-winning New England Photography Guild, and has been photographing as fine art for more than three decades.

He was a student of the renowned photographer Galen Rowell, and credits Rowell’s skill with light and composition as a major influence in his own approach to making photographic art.

All of the photographs that will be on exhibit in Dover are original works, and while they include a growing body of images from around the world, viewers may be most drawn to Gaitley’s New England landscapes, from the countryside to the sea, organizers said.

Gaitley said in a statement that he channels emotional responses when taking landscape photographs.

“I constantly question the emotions I feel as I view the world around me," Gaitley said. "Bringing the features that capture the moment to prominence and concentrating on the emotion behind the vision is my ultimate goal.”

Many of the photographs on exhibit will be for sale to the public, with 10 percent of the proceeds donated to the Friends of the Dover Library.

For hours, directions, and more information on the exhibit, visit the Dover library's website or call 508-785-8113.
