This book is the first in-depth pictorial survey of the Berkshires. Striking color photography by Paul Rocheleau and an informative introduction by Richard Nunley reveal the dramatic beauty and cultural vitality of the region.
Rocheleau's photographs have captured the diversity of the Berkshire landscape in all its seasons: rippling brooks and verdant woodlands, hillside meadows and valley marshes, mountain waterfalls and lush flora. Woven into this natural tableau are images that depict the enduring accomplishments of men and women: the wealth of historic architecture (both domestic and industrial, grand and humble), the picturesque farms and orchards, the time-worn fieldstone walls. The photographs also include the region's many nationally acclaimed institutions offering the performing and fine arts -- be it virtuosic music at Tanglewood, dazzling dance at Jacob's Pillow, or cutting edge culture at MassMoCA. As this book eloquently demonstrates, the arts continue to flourish in the Berkshires.
Art and nature reside in harmony in the Berkshires. The Berkshires is a book for all who wish to explore, and to be inspired by, this remarkable part of America.
