    Photographs by Rebecca Lepkoff at Vermont Center for Photography, Brattleboro VT

    Almost Utopia features nearly 60 of Lepkoff’s black and white photographs, which capture native Vermonters and people “from away” at work and play during the summer of 1950. The exhibit corresponds with the release of the Vermont Historical Society’s recently published book, “Almost Utopia: The Residents and Radicals of Pikes Falls, Vermont, 1950”, which will be available at the opening reception.

    Rebecca Lepkoff and historian Greg Joly, who wrote the text accompanying the photographs, will be on hand to sign books. Joly, a resident of Jamaica, has written a background essay that places the people, the community, and the photographs in the larger context of state and national history.

    The exhibit will be on view from August the 1st until September 29

    See www.vcphoto.org for details.
