Vermont Barns and Covered Bridges - Loren Fisher - Woodstock Vermont

Vermont Barns and Covered Bridges by Loren Fisher

Old barns and covered bridges have always been a favorite photographic subject for Loren, and Vermont is a great place to find both - so she collected them into a brilliant book! When Loren started photographing Vermont's covered bridges there were 106 historic bridges, now there are 104 and Loren has photographed them all. There are too many barns in Vermont to count but it is estimated to be between 2,500 and 3,000 over 50 years old.
