I did not grow up on a farm, I am a city kid all the way through, my parents, however, did. I am drawn to farms and barns as subjects and I often find myself set up with my view camera looking out over a cultivated field. I wonder to myself if this comes from generations-old genetic connections, these feelings of sustenance, and self-provision. Or maybe it is the geometric forms carved out of otherwise chaotic landscapes.
This hand-pulled photogravure print is made with Gamblin bone black and sepia ink, with a dash of Charbonnel sanguine ink on Hahnemühle copperplate paper. I printed an edition of just 8 numbered prints and 2 A/P prints.
