Farmwork: Men and Women on the Land
by Colin Shaw
Publisher's Description
British photographer Colin Shaw, in his introduction to this book, suggests that those who work at agriculture are now, and will remain, hidden from the majority of the population. His book attempts to challenge this obscurity and "put people back into the agricultural landscape." His photographs of farmworkers in England bring us up close into the daily work of those who produce what many of us take for granted: the food we eat. Some pictures show the lovely vistas of a large farm, some the industrial equipment currently part of farming, but all include the men and women who actually perform the labor itself.
