'Portrait of a Forest: Men and Machine'

When: Oct. 9-Jan. 9 2016

In this 70-photograph exhibition at the Vermont Folklife Center, Weybridge photojournalist George Bellerose shares his perspective of Vermont’s contemporary logging industry. His work is given additional context through historical documents relating to the foresting community, exhibited alongside the photos. Bellerose comments, “Unlike Vermonters of the past, many of us no longer have a direct connection to the working landscape. We see logging trucks and the occasional roadside log collection, but rarely do we have contact with loggers or fully understand their importance to the state.” “Portrait of a Forest” is a companion to a prior Bellerose/VFC project, “Forty-Six Years of Pretty Straight Going: The Life of a Family Dairy Farm.”
