Growing Food, Growing Farmers
On display through September 2021
Opening Reception: July 26, 5:30-7:30 p.m.
Artist: Macaulay Lerman in partnership with Greg Sharrow and Andy Kolovos
Growing Food, Growing Farmers is an intimate look at the expanding community of young farmers in Rutland County and the surrounding area. The exhibit showcases farmers through large-format photographic portraits by Macaulay Lerman. The ethnographic interviews conducted by Sharrow and Kolovos, and the resulting biographical and audio content in the exhibit, share the experience and insights of the farmers in their own words. The large-scale photo portraits—nearly 4 by 3 feet—were created with a similar intention in mind. Lerman’s photographic process is ethnographic in spirit and echoes the philosophy of deep listening and collaboration that forms the Folklife Center’s approach to cultural research. Growing Food, Growing Farmers is a production of the Vermont Folklife Center and its Vision & Voice Touring Exhibit Program.
