Like a Whisper is a collaborative project to photograph the traces of human and geologic activity on the land; a geography resulting from years of scarring and healing leaving marks on the land, much like the erasures and scrapings in old manuscripts on precious vellum, resulting in a palimpsest. We expressively document these layered marks at sites of Ancient Rome occupation along the path of Hadrian’s Wall in northern England using mobile technology.

Connecticut photographer Judith Thorpe on the female body, religious iconography and her life behind a camera by Rowen H. Gray, July 2017
“Ecstasy, from the series The Passions” at the New Bedford Art Museum. The large, black-and-white photographs of Judith Thorpe, featuring women wrapped in fabric. In their anonymity, she made their very femaleness boldy monumental, as if they were the goddesses and madonnas of antiquity. And that is what they became.” Don Wilkinson, art writer and critic, New Bedford, MA, December 28, 2017
