|Beth Ann O'Hara, March 2014.|
I was assigned to photograph Beth Ann
as part of New Hampshire Magazine's "Remarkable Women 2014: Game Changers"
article. While known for her theater work, I was more intrigued by a passing reference to her being McGovern
's photographer during the NH component of his presidential run. I asked her about this when I visited her, and she revealed that he had invited her to continue with him throughout his national campaign. Her family obligations, however, led her to decline this offer.
I asked whether she had those photographs at hand, but after a search, she couldn't locate them. We promised each other another visit to explore them and discuss this part of state and national history from one who witnessed it in a way few others did.
The above unpublished photograph from our session shows her intricate needlepoint art hanging on the wall. They depict the four seasons.
