The New England Farm

A collection of sixty-two black and white photographs published by Wickwire Press, 1983.

The hard but beautiful landscape, the way in which the seasonal advance can be noted almost daily, the spare and functional architecture, the laconic honesty of its people: these are the enduring facts of New England.  In this remarkable collection of photographs of New England farms and the people who work them, Thomas Gilson has paid homage to those facts, and in doing so has created a book that bears returning to again and again. 

The Washington Post …"A collection of fine and almost timeless photographs…"

Mark Feeney, Boston Globe …."The photographs are unfailing handsome, as is the book that contains them.”

Popular Photography….”superb sense of composition…” The New England Farm is a perfect antidote for the hard-edged stridency of contemporary life.”
