In 1999 Scot Miller embarked on a journey to retrace Henry David Thoreauís footsteps during his time spent at Walden in the 1840s. Miller spent many hours in every season trekking through Walden Woods with his cameraófighting off mosquitoes in the summer and feeling the ice of the pond crack beneath his feet in the winter.
Millerís personal photographic journey is reminiscent of that taken by Thoreau more than one hundred and fifty years ago and carries a consistent message of personal appreciation of nature that encourages stewardship and conservation. The result of Millerís photographic journey, and the inspiration for this exhibition, is Walden: 150th Anniversary Illustrated Edition of the American Classic. Showing November 10ĖFebruary 10, 2013
