The Alchemy of Art
I have studied photography at Tompkins County Community College for many years. This past fall our class took field trips organized by our teacher, Harry Littell. My goal for the semester was to make a collection of photographers’ portraits.
This collection is currently on display as part of the Alchemy of Art exhibit at the State of the Art Gallery in Ithaca, New York.
In 1972 my husband, Tim, and I moved to a house on Bailor Road in Caroline, New York, a few miles east of Ithaca. Most of the families on this road moved here after 1970.
A half mile east of our house Bailor Road intersects Buffalo Road. Many families on this road have lived in the town for generations.
For the past year I’ve been asking our neighbors on both roads the same question: What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you think about living on our hill?
This book collects the answers and includes photographs of the people and places.
