    MIDDLEBURY — Photographs of Vermont quarries — including several in the hills of Barre Town — will be display at the Middlebury College Museum of Art through April 21.

    The exhibition — “Nature Transformed” — opened earlier this month and features a series of photographs taken by Edward Burtynsky.

    Several were taken more than 20 years ago when Burtynsky toured Barre Town quarries — most dormant, some active, and all owned by Rock of Ages Corp.

    The exhibition also includes photographs of the marble quarries around Rutland.

    “Nature Transformed” considers a selection of Burtynsky’s photographs within the context of Vermont’s social and cultural history, as well as the much longer history of the geological formation of northern New England and its marble and granite deposits.

    Burtynsky is scheduled to give a talk Thursday, March 14, at 4:30 p.m. in Dana Auditorium on Route 125 on the Middlebury campus.

    Burtynsky’s photographic depictions of global industrial landscapes are included in the collections of over 50 major museums around the world.
