Barbara Bosworth & Margot Anne Kelley: The Meadow
Emily Dickinson wrote that all it takes to make a prairie is "one clover, and a bee. / And revery." It turns out that to know a prairie (or meadow) is a bit more complicated, as photographer Barbara Bosworth and writer Margot Anne Kelley have discovered. For more than a decade, Bosworth and Kelley have meandered in, studied and photographed a single meadow in Carlisle, Massachusetts. In addition to their own investigations, they have invited botanists, entomologists, naturalists and historians to consider the meadow with them. Also included are historic maps of the property dating to the 1800s, and a transcription of notes from a former owner whose family has continuously documented plant and bird life in the meadow from 1931 until the 1960s.
Part photo-essay, part journal and part scientific study, this book is a meditation on the shifting perspective that occurs when one repeatedly sees the same place through new eyes.

Time, Best Photobooks of 2016
It is very re-assuring that one small plot can be so lovingly explored and it is the thoroughness of this that makes this book so compelling.
