We are huge fans of Caleb's work, but his bird's-eye-view photographs of our beautiful state are next-level; they transform what we occasionally take for granted into art. An array of solar panels become a geometric pattern dancing across the terrain, trees become the source of graceful shadows, and a single small watercraft appears as an explorerer on a sky-blue body of water. These images challenge our expectations of what Vermont looks like, and invite us to see it anew.

Description


Caleb Kenna's vertiginous views of Vermont invite a new way of looking at the Green Mountain State. These stunningly abstract drone images reveal hidden patterns and are rich with detail, color, shadow, and mood. Tractor tracks on a field in Weybridge; fresh snowfall on an apple orchard in Cornwall; the swirling Nulhegan River in Brunswick. The 130 color photographs, most of them taken around the Champlain Valley, were inspired by Alfred Stieglitz's Equivalent series and the work of his protege, Minor White. They invite us on a journey of excitement and discovery, one that Kenna has described as a daily practice and a form of meditation.
