One of the photos that will be in Joseph Weiler’s exhibit at the Watertown Library, “Bluenose II.”

The “New England Coast: Islands, Schooners & Ocean” photo exhibit at the Watertown Public Library has been extended for two weeks. The Exhibit will close on Nov. 14.

The exhibit features the work of Watertown photographer Joseph Weiler and had originally be scheduled to run in the month of October.

The gallery is located on the second floor of the Watertown Free Public Library, behind the reference desk.

Weiler sent out the following information about the exhibition:

The 21-framed photographs explore our coastline from Monhegan Island’s artists to Cape Cod’s lovely beaches. Gloucester’s antique fishing schooners are shown in their yearly race. The captions explore the issues of building fuel efficient fishing boats, overfishing and Global Warming.

The last frame quotes Greta Thunberg’s book, No One is Too Small to Make a Difference, which pleads for us to reduce Carbon dioxide emissions to slow Global Warming. If we do not decrease Carbon dioxide emissions we may get to see the rising water level caused by Global Warming submerge Cape Cod’s beaches.

I have explored the New England Coast, using my eyes & camera for 70 years. I work with 35mm film Nikon cameras and processes my own black & white film and gelatin silver prints.

My photographs have been exhibited widely, including Faces of Afghanistan at the Berkshire Museum. I studied photography at Rochester Institute of Technology, journalism at Syracuse University and fine-art photography with Minor White. My experience running the Weiler Photo Gallery, located on a dock over Smith Cove Gloucester, for 25-years allowed many opportunities to photograph the coast up close.
