Thoreau’s Maine Woods: A Journey in Photographs

In commemoration of the 150th anniversary of the publication of Henry David Thoreau's The Maine Woods, the Harvard Museum of Natural History offers an exhibition of finely crafted photographic prints by photographer Scot Miller, who has traversed the state of Maine for years retracing the the footsteps of New England's native son, Henry David Thoreau. Opening Saturday, November 16, 2013, Thoreau's Maine Woods: A Journey in Photographs with Scot Miller will feature stunning photographs of many places that Thoreau explored and wrote about along with historical information and natural history specimens from Harvard's collections. The exhibition compliments the ongoing exhibition, New England Forests in the Zofnass Family Gallery.
