Leslie D. Bartlett


Chapter viii

LESLIE D. BARTLETT…has lived on Cape Ann for over 35 years & can be found hanging off quarry walls from predawn through sunset. His work is collected on and off Cape Ann. His Stage Magic Photography is cherished world-wide.

‘Chapters on a Quarry Wall,’ is a signature digital edition of images gathered from deep within the quarry walls of Cape Ann. Granite reacts to the Atlantic’s salt air and fog-laden mornings. Repeated visits offer a variety of experiences – a slow deliberate conversation takes place; the structure of the rock, drill patterns and occasional fauna reveal color transitions toned by successive seasons.

‘Color as a chiseled marker which punctuates the tensions and shifting states of the underlying geological strata.’
