Edie Weiler was an accomplished photographer and a much loved member of WCA/NH. She was our Exhibitions Coordinator for many years and devoted countless hours volunteering for our group. After many years of taking beautiful photographs using film, and then digital photography, on a whim she took a workshop in tintypes, a 19th century wet plate collodion photographic technique. This workshop took her in a completely new direction. She became passionate about this very complicated, labor intensive process and created countless beautiful, yet haunting photos. We are creating this scholarship in her memory to help motivate our members to study something new, a new technique or medium to inspire and motivate you to explore a new direction in your work.
“I just love it. I love the messiness. It’s so hands-on and I think that’s the big intrigue and that every step of it is my doing.” –Edie Weiler
