“Although violent and human forces may have created the main object, Bartlett provides visual interest and psychological comfort by surprising us with an harmonious order. Perhaps, it is the beneficent light – the kindest aspect of the fire element that gives warmth and life – that accords with the observer. Bartlett’s arresting photographs offer a perpetual opportunity to experience the natural world with an immediacy and freshness that few are able to find, as well as a lesson on how to behold.” – Rebecca A. G. Reynolds, Curator of the John and Margaret Manship Collection, formerly of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston
