"Terraces," Mariana Cook

Searching for years, Mariana Cook has documented the fascinating cultural artifact that is slowly disappearing in modern times: Stone Walls

"It was their beauty that kept me going," Ms. Cook said. "You’ve got to be a little nuts to go all over the world, tromping around fields looking for walls."

The quest began on her own property on Martha’s Vineyard, and expanded out from there. As she traveled New England in search of more walls, her interest in them only grew.

"Seeing the juxtaposition of two or three stones together could just be so beautiful," she said. "Their intricacies were remarkable and endless."
