Environmental Photographer Exhibit

Nature Transformed: Edward Burtynsky's Vermont Quarry Photography in Context it currently showing at the Middlebury College Museum of Art until April 22.
"In this exhibition of Burtynsky's iconic photographs of the quarries of Vermont are explored within the context of the geological and social history of the area including in particular the Italian immigrant stoneworkers in the granite quarries near Barre. "

This rather stunning display of large frame photography in Vermont quarries is jaw dropping.
The large panels of photographs have a mixture of texture, shapes and color that pull the viewer in and won't let go. This free display is not to be missed by lovers of Vermont history and photography.
