Stuck in Vermont: Photographer Matthew Thorsen Gets the Last Word 

Episode 550

Matthew Thorsen has taken thousands of photographs during his lifetime, many for Seven Days during his 23 years with the paper. We recently celebrated his legendary work documenting the local arts, culture and music scene with a show called "Thorever" at Burlington City Arts.

Two years ago, Matt was diagnosed with melanoma on his toe. The cancer spread into the rest of his body, growing into malignant tumors. At the age of nearly 51, Matt has finished with radiation and experimental treatments.

I've known Matt since I started working at Seven Days 11 years ago. He is one of the most quirky, talented, and kind people I've ever met. And of course he has collected a treasure trove of photos that have been included in multiple "Stuck in Vermont" videos (including this one which featured him). I spent an afternoon with Matt at his home in Essex talking about life, art and dying.

Matt's birthday is October 10th so send him some birthday love!
