Publisher's Description

Selected as Book of the Week by Forrest Soper

What has become of the fabled Walden Pond? In his debut title, S. B. Walker surveys the symbolically charged landscape of literary giant Henry David Thoreau. Deeply rooted in the American collective consciousness, it is a mythical place perceived as wild and often considered to be the birthplace of the modern environmental movement. Contemporary Walden, however, is perhaps best characterized as a glorified suburban park, nestled amongst the sprawl of metropolitan Boston. As our awareness of the place is borne out of Thoreau's description some 150 years ago, the current state of affairs portrayed in Walker's images reveals a thought-provoking paradox.

The Limited Edition comes with a 8'x10' print, signed by the artist.
