At the site of the new art exhibit “From the River, To the River,” the Archery Building stands in disrepair. Here are a few shots of the grittier beauty that exists on the walls of this old institution of Brattleboro.
Down by the train tracks, with local street art as a vibrant backdrop, I met Darwin, a 28-year old Navy Veteran, who’s been hitchhiking for 7 years through 49 states. Darwin’s a passionate writer, recording the epic tales of his travels to beautiful lands, as well as the special people he has met along the way. His writings are in his hands, in this photograph of a gentle soul on the move, and one day he hopes to publish them in a collected work. I hope to stumble across it just as I stumbled across him. Godspeed, my friend!
