The collection's logo
This body of work is a long-term project which attempts to capture the living spirit of the hearts of organic farmers and of their connected hands which serve as instruments of cultivation and harvest. Because of their value system, organic farmers work closer to the earth than traditional farmers. Organic farmers believe that they have a life-long responsibility to those that they produce food for. Their level of personal commitment is characterized by a ubiquitous grace, geniuses, and resilience. The farmers depicted are some of the best examples of this ideal.
