Exhibit: Faces of Addison County: A Trent Campbell Retrospective
The Sheldon Museum is pleased to honor Trent Campbell in this retrospective exhibit. Campbell, a longtime resident of Middlebury, learned photography at his grandfather’s knee in his home state of Minnesota. He became the Addison County Independent photographer in 1998 where he took award-winning photos around the county for more than 20 years. Campbell spent many hours on assignment and even more wandering the back roads of the county, meeting and getting to know countless residents. He was a fixture at events and was an expected sight with his trademark camera and warm smile. Campbell’s career was interrupted in 2018 when he survived the first of two strokes. He continues his recovery but still has his unique eye. He may be shooting less but still loves the county and the people in it. Campbell said, “I feel so embraced and supported by the people of Addison County after serving them through my work that I want to give back to them and celebrate them with this collection of 24 photographs.”
This exhibit is virtual on the Sheldon Museum website. It will open for in-person viewing at the Sheldon the week of July 13 through September 11, 2021.
