farmlife

"farmlife" is a documentary photography project which describes through the powerful medium of traditional film-based black and white photography three Dorset farms, and the working lives of the farmers and farm workers.

As a life-long farmer myself, with a passion for photography, I have spent over a year photographing in my spare time the work through the seasons on these very different farms, all within an 8 mile radius of my own farm. Something of the determined characters of these farming friends and neighbours has emerged through the project´┐Żs images, which has helped reaffirm my faith in this important and wonderful way of life.

The results are an attempt to show in an unsentimental but visually stimulating way the reality of working life for these producers of our food and stewards of the countryside.

The Farmlife collection is now on permanent loan to Kingston Maurward College, Dorchester.
