Thoreau's Maine Woods, A Journey in Photographs with Scot Miller

Special Exhibit at Harvard Museum of Natural History, Cambridge, Massachusetts, now through February 2015.

In commemoration of the 150th anniversary of the publication of Henry David Thoreau’s The Maine Woods, this exhibition features the stunning photographs of Scot Miller, who has traversed the state of Maine for years, retracing the footsteps of Thoreau, New England’s native son. Thoreau’s Maine Woods: A Journey in Photographs with Scot Miller highlights the many places that Thoreau explored and wrote about using finely-crafted photographs, as well as historical information, and specimens from Harvard’s collections, including one-of-a-kind plant samples collected in northern Maine by Thoreau himself.
