Evelyn R. Swett is a photographer and gardener who is happiest mucking around with comfrey and compost. Born in Brooklyn, New York in 1965, Swett has spent the past fifteen years trying to figure out what it takes for a suburban family of four to live within the planet’s means. A fine arts graduate from Harvard College with an MBA and a Masters in Teaching, Swett lives in Hanover, NH. She is a founding member of the Sustainable Hanover Committee and has found a voice for her activism through photography. Swett had her first solo show in 2019 and has been in a number of juried and group exhibitions in Vermont and New Hampshire. Her work honors what others might overlook and reveals the transformative power and beauty of what we throw away.
