Featured Member Artist: Harry Littell

I’m trying to tell one possible story of this small swath of upstate New York—the Finger Lakes and the Southern Tier—as seen through my photographs. I want to see the big picture, to understand how things fit together. I like to imagine that this depiction of sad, beautiful upstate New York also represents the larger American scene.
