Wordless Wednesday - A+ Photo Essay

In the Summer Allan did a photography course as part of his degree.  It was on a ranch and I went with him.  His final assignment was to use 5 photos to tell a story...a photo essay.  This is Allan's A+ Photo Essay.


  ARTIST STATEMENT

Food Family Fun
The photographs I have chosen in this series represent a small part of the journey our family has taken over the past three years. This journey started with reading books like Animal, Vegetable, Miracle: A Year Of Food Life by Barbara Kingsolver. This has been a journey of trying to be conscious of what we eat and where our food comes from. Our family gathers around the table each evening to eat a home cooked meal and we try as far as possible to make environmentally intelligent food choices. We love to eat, to cook and to enjoy good food together.
The photographs in this series represent the journey of gathering food locally to enjoy together as a family.
Composition:
In order to tell my story I composed a series of still life photographs trying to capture the elements of local food sellers, picking vegetables at a local farm and the enjoyment of the meal with friends and family.
