Paul Vanderbilt's Landscapes

The Historical Society has mounted a selection of photographs taken by Paul Vanderbilt, one of the premier landscape photographers of the 20th century. The images were made primarily in the central and western regions of Wisconsin and include small towns, farmlands, and views along the Wisconsin and Mississippi Rivers. There is a wooded hillside shrouded in early morning fog near Spring Green, a winding farm road near Gilmanton, fishing boats in Algoma, a round barn in Ontario, the Washington Island shore, and a churchyard in Norwalk. The images, primarily made on large format black and white film, capture the essence of the rural Wisconsin landscape.
