Agricola is some new work on the subject of farming and growing food, and how the industry is changing.
Subjects range from back gardens, to allotments, tenant farmers, smallholdings, community farming, innovative crops, poly-tunnel fruit, agroforestry, rewilding, diversification, vertical and hydroponics, to industrial and established.
And more, as the project is ongoing. I plan to complete it during 2021.
The project grew out of getting an allotment for the first time myself right at the start of the UK Covid-19 lockdown in March 2020, to the semi-shortages of some food during the lockdown itself, and an interest in the supply chain from that, and the new Agriculture Bill being debated in the UK government and the press (of course owing to Brexit).
The pictures here are currently uncaptioned so if you'd like to know more please get in touch.
The project is featured in Creative Review's The Photography Annual 2020
