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!
