The Other Working Landscape

In rural New England, farms and forests are often considered the “working” landscape. Since 2004, artist Tom Leytham has explored the remnants of the “other” working landscape: our 19th- and 20th-century industrial past. Through a series of watercolors, Leytham documents this industrialized landscape of ruined and repurposed buildings and structures in Vermont and the surrounding region as a means of appreciating the resourcefulness of their design and construction.

Watch Hiding in Plain Sight, a short video about the artist, his process, and the working landscape that inspires him.
