Global views in photos at Chelms library
Laundry on a clothesline outside a graceful stone window, drying in the sun.
Two women, their heads covered in dark shawls, conversing earnestly about the news of the day.
Holy water, beckoning in a silent blessing.
These scenes of moments of life, bringing intimacy to world travels, are part of the exhibit, ‘Portugal 41 Travel Photography with Liz Cardoso,’ on view through November at the Chelmsford Public Library.
Cardoso, a Lowell-based photographer and first-generation Portuguese-American, has spent years crossing the globe, taking photos in countries across six continents — including Myanmar, Colombia, Kenya, Egypt, Australia, Thailand and Jordan.
According to her artist’s statement, Cardoso’s parents immigrated in the 1960s from Terceira, Acores, an island in an archipelago off the cost of Portugal.
Cardoso speaks English, Spanish and Portuguese, and holds a degree in international business from Merrimack College. She also holds a certificate in Spanish from Barcelona.
