“Uncle John” 2014
Middlebury native, John Reynolds, is my Uncle-in-law, who now lives in Brandon. He is a Veteran, a collector and a giver. He swings by our house periodically in his truck. I always know his knock—loud and deliberate. Aside from his physical collections, he’s got a collection of great stories. His visits are short—under 15 minutes, but well executed—he’ll pull out a cigarette, tell you a wild story and leave you with a trinket before he heads back out on the road. Photographed in the heart of a frigid Vermont winter, his beard and cigarette blended perfectly into the overcast lighting. And of course after the shoot, Uncle John flashed his secret smile and handed over a Mannequin head with green earrings as a sentiment for coming by.
This is the moment before a fall storm hits. I was taken by the rusty metal of the windmill juxtaposed by the dry golden grass and back-dropped by that beautiful churning blue. I drove by this windmill everyday in Addison, VT, but it suddenly looked alive with the dramatic lighting and the inevitable rage of rain to come.
