STICK SEASON, an on-going Vermont photographic project, refers to the leafless season between fall foliage and the first lasting snow of winter. Working statewide during this transitional period (generally the month of November), Vermont native PAUL ROGERS (BFA, School of Photographic Arts and Sciences at Rochester Institute of Technology, 1982) documents natural and man-made landscapes, people, and cultural activities.These photos are his visual observations on Vermont in this season.
Stylistically, the work tends toward the documentary - including the photographer's choice to neither add nor subtract (or reposition) subjects, either in the scene or in post-production. Some perspective corrections are made in architectural subjects, and some panoramas are merged from multiple images. Please browse his 12 year Stick Season gallery.
