Have you ever searched in google for "what does a farmer look like?".....wow! All I found were old men with beards, wearing overalls and holding a pitchfork!
I'm a farmer and I certainly don't look like that!
The idea for this book came from a twitter discussion I was a part of about the image that is portrayed about how the average farmer looks. It was a discussion including a couple of women and we were all a little disappointed with that google search!
My aim with this book is to show people exactly who farmers are and what we really look like! From veggie growers to wool producers, cattle graziers to oyster farmers there are so many different people and industries that can fall under the banner "farmer".
As a photographer, I've always wanted to put together a beautiful coffee table book of my photographs and combining that with telling people's stories is just perfect!
I hope you enjoy it!
