Mahonri Young's Studio - Restored

   

In 2011, the National Park Service commissioned me to artistically photograph the unrestored interiors of Mahonri Young's
studio located at Connecticut's first national park unit, Weir Farm National Historic Site.  Young was a painter and
sculptor of the Ashcan School and the son-in-law of Julian Alden Weir, the father of American Impressionist painting.  
After the restoration was completed in 2014, the NPS had me return to photograph the stunning changes.

These photographs of Young's studio reflect his hardscrabble career of creating monumental sculptures and ennobling
etchings of American pioneers and workers.   It is interesting to compare these spaces with their prior vacant condition
shown here.  Some of these photographs are still being fine-tuned and all of them look best when seen as large exhibit prints.
