"Brown is my favorite upcountry artist with a camera. His
photographs have such crisp luminosity I think I would recognize
them anywhere." -- Maxine Kumin - The New York Times Book
"Nearly every place has its own unique beauty, and Brown perfectly captures that." -- USA Today
"The beauty of Richard Brown's photos makes us think about what we are doing to our state. His is an important vision: much of Vermont is still beautiful, but we need to see and appreciate the ideal if we are to preserve it. [His] photography expresses that ideal superlatively well." -- Tom Slayton - Vermont Life
