This is where I live. I am here for a reason. Vermont is my antidote to civilization. If you look you will find people who reside in another time, reminding one of bygone times and eras. This is a vanishing landscape. These are places and people tucked away from the world of computers and emails and cell phones. Places and people with real character. As a photographer I have tried to capture the essence of the real Vermont with its lifestyle firmly rooted in agriculture. Many of these photographs pay homage to those who built the barns and farm the land.
