Bushes of Bennington County

“This collection approaches 2,000 images which is probably about a third of all the bushes in Bennington county. This is a tiny selection of what I find to be the most incisive from the catalog. Beyond a taxonomy, the collection presents an opportunity for the bushes to speak for themselves. Each reveals a complex personality: ecstatic, pitiable, stoic, tremulous, enveloping, guarding, lone, grouped, wild, ancient, strong, flexible, trapped, wounded, resilient, etc. It’s not about the collection as a one-liner. If there’s meaning to be gleaned, it comes from each one and how it relates to its neighbor creating a sense of the whole.”
