For more than forty years Richard Brown has been taking photographs of his beloved home state. In this ode to the land and its people, he brings together his favorite images to share his own deeply personal vision of Vermont.

Richard Brown's Vermont has many seasons. The familiar glory of fall foliage, when the hills are giddy with color, gives way to the austere "off season," that brief November transition before the snow flies, when the bones of the landscape are revealed in fallow fields and the bare limbs of trees. In deepest winter the ubiquity of snow renders even more vivid those few colors that remain - the cobalt blue of a shadow on snow, the warm red of a barn. "Mud and Maple" celebrates both the convivial season of flowing sap and the perennial challenges of impassable dirt roads. In spring, lambs frolic in green pastures, and the all-too-fleeting summer months bring a burst of industry to gardens and fields before September's frost. 

Throughout the seasons, Brown's soulful images create a distinctive photographic portrait of Vermont's landscape and its people. He chronicles with great affection the people who live and work on the land, and without sentimentality he celebrates a rapidly disappearing way of life.
