East Haddam Barns: A Pictorial Survey
East Haddam Barns: A Pictorial Survey By George Fellner The pastoral character of East Haddam is enhanced by a plethora of barn subject material. This is the fifth annual photo/essay presentation performed by local architect George Fellner and sponsored by the East Haddam Historical Society and Museum.
Using his camera and lenses, Mr. Fellner searches for unique and stimulating representations of the built and natural environment,celebrating the history, architecture, and landscape of this quintessential Connecticut town. In this program, he reviews the basic history of barns, barn typology, and construction integrated with a series of visual case studies. The selected images portray a range of barn types, including old as well as recently constructed manifestations of the barn theme. As in previous programs, the intent is to evoke an appreciation of the past and to realize the relevance of the past within the context of the present!
