The Disappearance of Joseph Plummer Amani Willett ’93

Overlapse, 2017 Hermit Brook, Hermit Lake, Hermit Woods Road, Plummer Road — all are named after a peculiar man who took to the New Hampshire woods some 200 years ago. With a desire to lead a solitary life, Joseph Plummer retreated to his remote homestead, building shelters, raising and gathering his own food, and crafting whatever tools and instruments he needed.

In this mystical accounting, Amani Willett allows readers entry into Plummer’s mysterious life, using ethereal images of historical documents and personal artifacts, as well as original and found photographs that capture the spirit of the recluse.
