Frederick Law Olmsted's
Home and Offices
During July 2019, I photographed the historic site in Brookline, Massachusetts. With the help of long-time U.S. Park Ranger Alan Banks, I assembled this tour. Welcome.
This page is the archive of my tours, covering work done over the last twenty years. Follow me on Facebook for sneak previews and many archive shots.
Most tours include three black buttons at the bottom of each tour: return to main page or map (if there is one), toggle between full screen, and a toggle for automatic rotation. Enjoy.
The Lyman Plant House
During much of 2019, I had the pleasure and honor of photographing the Marlboro College campus in its final year.
A palace of light, warmth and life stands poised just above the pond on the Frederick Law Olmsted-designed Smith College campus. The Lyman Plant House was built in 1895. It's eight houses represent the principle climates of the earth.
Christo in Central Park
For two weeks one February,
Central Park was transformed into a massive art installation. Christo and Jeanne Claude's "The Gates" took over the park. Wander around Olmsted's masterwork and relive
this fleeting and illuminating vision.
On Benefit Street in downtown Providence, Rhode Island stands the historic Providence Athenaeum. Founded in 1831, the library has served scholars and authors such as Edgar Allen Poe
and H.P. Lovecraft.

Just beyond where the pavement ends and the dirt roads begin in Newfane, Vermont, Diane Echlin is busy at work creating enchanting ceramic works to enhance your life. Mugs, bowls, tincture bottles and so much more. Take a look!
Pete Seeger's Hudson Clearwater Sloop
Step aboard my new tour above and below decks of this replica of an 19th century single-sail sloop that used to travel the Hudson River. Step Aboard!
High up in a mill building overlooking a canal in Lowell, Massachusetts, Christopher Volpe creates vibrant oil paintings that capture the drama of the New England landscapes he loves. Loomings, his series of canvases painted with tar, asks haunting nautical questions.
