On Tuesday, July 25, at 7 pm, the Chapman Museum will host a program and book signing with photographer Carl Heilman II, who will discuss his book The Adirondacks: Season by Season.
In 2015, for an Adirondack Life project, Carl Heilman photographed a single dramatic Adirondack scene throughout the entire year. Beginning with a pre-dawn hike on a brisk mid-January morning, and ending with a unique clouds motion sequence on Dec 30, he hiked the mile and a half, and 1,500 feet of elevation up the Giant Mountain Ridge trail 35 times to photograph the changes in each of the 12 months. Carl also shot video and time lapse sequences to convey the feeling of being there at this single location over a year’s time.
The diverse imagery from this shoot inspired the layout for his newly published book The Adirondacks: Season by Season. For his program Carl will present a mix of video and still footage created for the project. He also will sign copies of the book, which will be available for purchase at the cost of $29.95. The program is free and open to the public.
The Chapman Museum is located at 348 Glen Street, Glens Falls. For more information call (518) 793-2826 or go visit the museum website.
