Mr. Strasmore has lived in Weston since 1999. His profession is organizational consulting and executive coaching.

He has been a volunteer on several town committees, and he and his wife, Kassandra, founded the Select Committee on Sustainability.

“Since I was a teenager in England, I have been taking photographs, and about 30 years ago I starting keeping journals and writing poetry,” Mr. Strasmore said.

The photographs start in 1983 in India, where Mr. Strasmore lived for two years studying yoga.

The photos on exhibit are a small part of an extensive collection that recorded the Strasmore family’s adventures, including recent long- distance walks and hikes — up Kilimanjaro, across England and into the back country of southern Iceland.

“The portraits here all have stories, and all start with making a human connection with someone, often across language barriers,” Mr. Strasmore said.
