They say necessity is the mother of invention but for Jonathan Hart of Amazing Vermont Photography, necessity was the mother of reinvention. Farmers Market Finds discovered Jonathan and his beautiful fine art prints at the Burlington Vermont Farmer’s Market. As a long time product and catalog photographer, Jonathan honed his craft photographing for national publications such as Orvis. But as the advertising world changed, Jonathan searched for a new outlet for his experience, talent, and skill as a photographer. The search for an avenue to continue his career in photography led him to a place where he fell in love – Vermont.
Moving to Vermont led Jonathan to new loves, both creative and a personal. The abundance of joy in his life shines through in the beauty of his work. Falling in love opened Jonathan’s heart to a new way to combine his loves, capturing the magnificent beauty that is Vermont. Jonathan’s images capture Vermont in a rich abundance of diversity in the Vermont landscape. His images highlight the dramatic seasons and iconic places and life that are the epitome of Vermont. His painterly images blur the line between what seems painted and what is photographed.
Jonathan selects images based on his desire to allow people to take home a piece of the Vermont that they imagine. Whether it is the iconic Green Mountains, rolling pastures, frosty winters or magnificent lakes, Jonathan’s work allows the individual to stare into his photos and be transported to the beauty of Vermont. Both locals and tourists who find Amazing Vermont Photography at the spectacular Burlington Farmers Market often tell Jonathan how his images remind them of a place they’ve been or captured the beauty that they imagined.
When asked why he has chosen to sell his fine art images at the Burlington Farmers Market, Jonathan explained that selling his images at the market, which on most Saturdays has between 9,000 and 12,000 attendees, allows him to experience the joy that people have when they see his work. Knowing that individual images of Vermont may range from icy winters to covered bridges or rolling farmlands to local farm animals, Jonathan keeps a wide assortment of images on display.
You can find Amazing Vermont Photography every Saturday at the Burlington Farmers Market. You can also find them at a wide variety of craft and art shows in the northeast east. (Click here for a list of shows). Amazing Vermont Photography will ship anywhere in the US. To make his art accessible and affordable, Jonathan has taken his images and created note cards that come with a story about the photo and matching envelope.
Jonathan continues to develop new ways to show his art. He is currently working with another local vendor on framing his images in reclaimed Vermont hardwoods, and developing a method of transferring his images onto metals and aluminum.
