Under an exclusive arrangement Woodstock NY based photo library The Image Works will be representing the Walden Woods Project’s Thoreau Institute Library.
TIW say: “The Walden Woods Project’s Thoreau Institute Library is home to the world’s largest collection of works by and about Henry David Thoreau, including the incomparable collections of the Thoreau Society. The Image Works is honored to be the exclusive distributor of this archive.” On the occasion of the bicentennial of his birth, Thoreau’s contributions are as meaningful today as they were during his lifetime. Many consider Thoreau to be one of the world’s greatest philosophers and naturalists. Thoreau was a strong advocate of human rights and conservation, issues that remain relevant in our modern world. His seminal work, Walden, is a widely read classic to this day. His essay, “Civil Disobedience,” has inspired many people, including Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King, Jr.
• The Walden Woods Project, founded in 1990, preserves the land, literature and legacy of Henry David Thoreau to foster an ethic of environmental stewardship and social responsibility, achieved through the integration of conservation, education, research and advocacy. The Thoreau Society, established in 1941, stimulates interest in and fosters education about Thoreau’s life and works, and his place in his world and in ours, challenging all to live deliberate, considered lives.
