This project was supported by a grant from the Andrew J. Mellon Foundation and the Digital Liberal Arts Initiative at Middlebury College. Additional funding was provided by the Committee on the Arts, the Director for the Arts, and the Department of History of Art and Architecture.
I am extremely grateful to the staff of the Middlebury College Museum of Art, who have all had a hand in this exhibition, especially Ken Pohlman, Museum Designer; Donn Marcus, Head of Security; and Margaret Wallace, Museum Registrar. Thanks also to Museum Director Richard Saunders and Emmie Donadio, Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art, who supported acquisition of the many photographs that have entered the collection. My appreciation goes to the students in my seminars on Photography and the Environment who provided their insights and inspiration for the exhibition, as well as my team of student research, videography, musical composers, and website design interns: Kirk Horton; Tevan Goldberg; Sam Kudman; Danny Padilla; Kristin Richards; Scott Waller; Danielle Weindling, and Rachel Kang.
