Sending Milk - three quick questions for photographer Skye Chalmers.

On Saturday, June 16 at 7 pm, Skye Chalmers presents his arresting collection of black and white photographs of the dairy farms of the northeast - Sending Milk. Following the slideshow and discussion please join us for a selection of Cabot cheeses and wine. In the meantime, we posed three questions...

Northshire: You must go to jail - you can take one book with you - which one?

SC: Yikes. Lets see....Encyclopedia Britannica.

Northshire: Very practical of you! Do you have a literary hero/heroine?

SC : My photography hero would be Joseph Koudelka. He is one of my favorites - the Hungarians and Czechs have amazing visual style- not sure what it is about that area that fosters that genius. His book Chaos is a must.

Northshire : Agree completely! I don't know what it is either - maybe the isolation for so much of the last century? Kept them free (ironically) of trends for the most part. I see it in their, of all things, animation, too - wonderful stuff.

Northshire: Did you have a favorite book as a child?

SC : The Adventures of Huck Finn - though I did try reading the dictionary when I was about seven but got to like page 6 in the letter A.

Northshire: That's further than I got. Thanks, Skye - looking forward to seeing you here this weekend!

This quite readable history of a typical Vermont town stresses the untypical aspects of Dorset. Tyler Resch focuses on five topics that are of special distinction to Dorset: the four Dorset Conventions of 1775-1776; the political maneuvers that resulted in the Mt. Tabor Leg; Dorset's status as the site of the first marble quarry on the continent; the "summer people" phenomenon and a tradition of arts and artists.

All of Joe Citro's books have unnerved me, but none so much as "The Gore". Something is in the forest. Something ancient. And it's been disturbed.
