Beth Thompson


During a project spanning close to four years, local photographer and writer Beth Thompson set out along trails in Georgia, Alabama, Florida and the Carolinas, capturing many of the flora and fauna highlighted in naturalist William Bartram’s Influential Travels along the way. These images and descriptions were compiled on her blog, and later became the source material for her most recent photography exhibition, “Travels on the Bartram Trail: Beth Thompson’s Possible Perceptions.” Kaleidoscopic scenes accompanied with quotations create an eclectic, modernized abridgment of Bartram’s observations from 250 years ago, heightening the mystery and wonderment of the natural world. Located in the Visitors Center Gallery, the exhibition will remain on view through Sunday. Nov. 29.
