    Beginning with a small book she hand-made when about age 7 in 1949 and snapshots made a few years later, Jane English’s 75 years have been filled with making books and photographs. She grew up in a small New England town and began photographing while completing a Ph.D. in physics at the University of Wisconsin. Her black-and-white photographs of nature illustrate a best-selling translation of the Chinese classic Tao Te Ching. After living in Mount Shasta, California for 15 years, Jane moved back to New England in 2002. She has also traveled to Greenland four times. This show includes images from Tao Te Ching, and from Mount Shasta, Greenland and Vermont.
