Landscapes within Walls within Frames

Last spring I had the pleasure of meeting Gary Perdue, a retired producer/director for Public Television who took up photography as a serious hobby, and the stone walls of Rhode Island as his subject.

After years of shooting, he designed an exhibit in which he arranged his photographs as if they were stones in a wall, and then framed that arrangement as if in the profile view of stone wall.  The frame shown in the image above is one of a dozen or more that, taken collectively, create a powerful exhibit.  I had a chance to see it when he drove it to Storrs, CT from State College, PA in a U-Haul van, accompanied by his wife and son.

Gary is seeking additional venues for the exhibit.  If interested, please contact the SWI coordinator Robert M. Thorson  via the Stone Wall Initiative.
