Photographer Mariana Cook conceived her latest project at her Chilmark home, when fifty-six cows strayed through a crumbling section of the stone wall she shares with her neighbor. From this inspiration, Cook embarked on an eight-year journey, travelling from New England to the American south, Britain, Ireland, the Mediterranean and Peru in pursuit of stone walls.
Cook, the last protégé of Ansel Adams, will discuss her fascination with the juxtaposition of stones as geometric composition and the resonance between walls of different cultures.
