Excerpts from the Working Land book:
Working Land tells the stories of six family farms in my Otter Tail County, Minnesota neighborhood. It focuses on the people rooted to these places through working the land, and who have deep ties to a place through past generations and the hope for future regeneration.
The book’s landscape images and workplace portraits, made in places seldom seen or considered by most, contemplate the human experience of living and working on this land. It speaks of the labor that shaped our landscape and how the land in turn shapes the lives of those who work it.
The people—the central subject of Working Land —make their voices heard through hand-drawn maps, diagrams and timelines. The book, made possible with an Minnesota Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund grant through the Lake Region Arts Council, also contains essays by others and an afterword and artist notes.
