The Hudson River School was a 19th century American art movement influenced by romanticism, focusing primarily on landscape paintings of the United States. The Hudson River School was named after a series of paintings depicting the Hudson River Valley in the northeastern United States, although the movement gradually spread to other parts of New England and the southern and western United States as well. The Hudson River School students were influenced by European landscape artists such as Claude Lorrain, J.M.W. Turner, and John Constable. These artists were also contemporaries of the transcendentalist literature and philosophy movement in America, a group of writers made famous for their love of nature.

Dmitry Gomberg: Akrak Vazha (The Shepherd’s Way)

Artist Statement: 

This is a story about Tusheti - mountain region in the Republic of Georgia. Tusheti lies near the Chechen border and it is culturally closer to Chechens than to Georgians. The story is about shepherds who travel every summer to their ancestors’ land Tusheti and than return to spend the winter at the bottom of the mountain. Twice a year they travel with their sheep through the pass in the Caucasus which is 3,000 meters high. 

I was staying and documenting life of the Shepherds in the Caucasus mountains for 5 years.

These people have been cheese makers since before Christ.

Their life is simple and harsh, but beautiful.

Each time we pick up a book, we’re seeking kinship. Maybe seeking is the wrong word — it’s more like the hands-off guidance a parent gives, the kind where we learn a lesson, but don’t realize our parents gave us all the tools to solve the puzzle and then let us do it on our own. From a young…
