I am wholly willing to be here / Between the bright silent thousands of stars / And the life of the grass pouring out of the ground. / The hill has grown to me like a foot. / Until I lift the Earth, I cannot move.                                                                                                                             – Wendell Berry

In 2017, I was part of a year-long collaboration coordinated by Harlow Gallery in Hallowell, ME to create art inspired by the life, work, and landscape of Maine farms and farmers. I spent the year partnered with Crystal Spring Farm in Brunswick, ME. Crystal Spring Farm is owned by the Brunswick-Topsham Land Trust and is leased by a lovely couple – Seth and Maura – who, with their kids and a group of dedicated and talented farm hands, run the farm and the associated CSA program. I had the pleasure of visiting the farm monthly all that year – walking, talking, watching, taking pictures and documenting a small part of the tremendous and unrelenting effort that goes into growing food. These images (some below) were my small tribute to the daily magic that Seth, Maura and their crew perform.
