APCC is proud to sponsor an exhibition of fine photographic prints by noted photographer Scot Miller. The photography in the exhibition captures—as it exists today— the enduring legacy of Henry David Thoreau and his famous walking trips along the shores of Cape Cod and his explorations of Maine’s interior, both of which took place in the mid-1800s. Those travels resulted in Thoreau’s classic works, Cape Cod and The Maine Woods.
APCC has planned several related events to take place at the Cultural Center of Cape Cod during the month-long photo exhibition.
The Scot Miller exhibition features photographs originally from the “Thoreau’s Maine Woods: A Journey in Photographs with Scot Miller” exhibit, on loan from The Walden Woods Project, which was created by the Harvard Museum of Natural History in partnership with Miller. In addition, a selection of Miller’s prints of Cape Cod from the book Cape Cod: Illustrated Edition of the American Classic are included.
Miller’s photographic work has formed the basis of numerous books, including Walden: The 150th Anniversary Illustrated Edition of the American Classic; Cape Cod: Illustrated Edition of the American Classic; First Light: Five Photographers Explore Yosemite’s Wilderness; My First Summer in the Sierra: 100th Anniversary Illustrated Edition, winner of a 2011 National Outdoor Book Award; Thoreau, The Maine Woods: A Photographic Journey Through an American Wilderness; and Emerson, Muir, Thoreau: A Photographic Trilogy of American Wildness. He is a frequent contributor to the “Moment in Nature” videos, broadcast nationally on Emmy award-winning CBS Sunday Morning.
