Arcadian Monuments

“Arcadian Monuments” is the work of documentary photographer Anna Fariello. Over the past 20 years, Fariello has driven hundreds of miles along rural roads and byways in southern Virginia, eastern Tennessee, and western North Carolina to find the solitary structures she describes as “vanishing cultural artifacts.” Many of the photographs in the series were originally part of a touring exhibition of the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts.

Dream Time Flora

Dream Time Flora is a collection of black-and-white photographs of umbrella magnolia, dogwood, wild grape, horsetails and other plants. The photographs have a darkness about them that suggests first light, twilight or a stormy day. In the dark there is “something more---unseen, unknown, mysterious.”
