From ancient weathered barns and simple fishing villages to the most lavish mansions of America's Gilded Age; from sugary, rose-covered sand dunes to sheer clay cliffs; from the raging Atlantic surf with its vast graveyard of shipwrecks to tranquil bays and peaceful backwaters, Victorian-era gingerbread inns and 17th century working farms, Rhode Island is a state of unlikely contrasts and harmony. Beyond the gleaming airport and the polished capital city of Providence, with its Ivy League universities, arts and theatre, luxury hotels and vibrant nightlife, one can travel more than 350 years back in time. Though this tiny state has just 39 cities and towns, much of its charm is tucked away in hundreds of villages and settlements. Travel with photographer Karen T. Bartlett along the country lanes and seaside highways of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations in Rhode Island: A Photographic Portrait.
