Photographs by Steve Rosenthal at de Menil Gallery, Groton, MA
April 4- June 5, 2011
(on loan from Historic New England)
Steve Rosenthal's gorgeous black-and-white photography of white churches in the New England vernacular can be savored in book form or up-close on exhibit.
You may recognize Rosenthal's name from his many credits in architectural photography, but for years he pursued a pet project -- composing breathtaking fine-art photos of a uniquely New England icon. From stoic meetinghouses to elegant Greek and Gothic Revival churches, his collection of eighteenth and nineteenth century, textured, white structures in the New England landscape is a treasure.
