The late Birge Harrison was a distinguished American landscape painter from Philadelphia, PA (October 28, 1854 - 1929). He practiced the style of Tonalism, which became a prominent method between 1880 and 1915, dark, neutral hues such as gray, brown or blue, often dominated compositions by American artists. This style soon became eclipsed by impressionism.
“We’re alive with our new secret, with the way we belong to each other and to something other than the dull passing of hours with nothing to look forward to besides our routines. It makes me feel even more powerful than the whiskey, and I want it to go on forever.”
“And Then…” is a collaborative photography project between photographer Jo Metson Scott and artist/set designer Nicola Yeoman. Each photograph depicts an open narrative set in a wooded scene, whether it be a ghostly horse drawn carriage or a downed hot air balloon — the series is ethereal, beautiful and thoughtful.
