Two sisters who both fell in love with photography when they were children will show their work Friday through Sunday, July 8 through 10 in the next exhibition of the Cushing Historical Society’s Arts in the Barn summer series.

The public is invited to an opening reception Friday from 5 to 8 p.m. in the barn behind the Cushing Historical Society building on Hathorne Point Road. The exhibition will continue Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

As a teenager growing up in Maine, Fales earned a Girl Scout badge for photography and dreamed she might some day earn a living with her camera work. Although she did not become a professional photographer, Fales has remained engrossed with capturing the landscapes she sees through her lens and sharing those images with others.

“I hope to show people the beauty of our Earth and the great need to protect it. I want people to see nature as I see nature,” she said.

Watching her big sister point and shoot, Jones began begging for permission to click the shutter on her mother’s camera. Soon she had her own Kodak pocket camera, and she graduated to the use of a single lens reflex instrument when she joined the Navy. Still attached to the SRL while also enjoying the advantages of digital performance, Jones is always seeking the “wow” moment when she said she knows that her personal interpretation of a subject “is worth keeping!”
