Zenfolio | DAVID HILEY Photography | About
My photographic interests range widely but social issues increasingly inform the content of my photographic explorations. My series of photographs, The Troubles, May 2014, is a commentary on the tension between past and present in ongoing sectarian conflict in Northern Ireland. I have an ongoing series of images dramatizing the negelect of public infrastructure.  I recently traveled to Haiti to document the work of the Haitian Health Foundation as part of my interest in issues of poverty and human rights.

My photographs have been featured in a two-person show at the Jan Dempsey Art Gallery in Auburn, AL. My series, Regarding Haiti, was a solo exhibition at the Robert Lincoln Levy Gallery in Portsmouth NH.  I have also exhibited in numerous juried shows at the Robert Lincoln Levy Gallery, Prescott Park Arts Festival, and the Seacoast Repertory Theatre Gallery, all in Portsmouth, NH.   And I was in the New England Biennial Exhibition at the Danforth Art Museum in Framingham MA.  My series, The Troubles 2014: Past is Always Present, was part of the Photography Atelier20 exhibition at the Griffin Museum of Photography in Winchester, MA.  I have been an invited contributor to three exhibitions at Gallery 6 in the New Hampshire Children’s Museum in Dover, NH; and my series of images, Haitian Chidren, will be on exhibit there March thru May 2016.  My Haitian Townscapes was exhibited at Camera Commons in Dover, NH this summer.  I am also represented in the juried Biennal RED Exhibition at the Cambridge Art Association.
I am a juried member of the Ogunquit Art Association and the New Hampshire Art Association, having served on its Board of Directors. I am also a member of the New Hampshire Society for Photographic Artists.

I am retired after a 45-year career as a teacher, scholar, and university administrator. My philosophical interests are ethics and political philosophy, and I have published four books and numerous articles in scholarly journals. I am currently working on a book on human rights as well as a photographic series exploring social justice issues.
