I’ve come to photography just as I’d come to motherhood: a bit later in life than I otherwise might have planned. When I picked up a camera for the first time in decades, I felt most comfortable exploring landscape. I was particularly drawn to farmlands I’d witnessed undergoing repeated cycles of implantation, fecundity and harvest while I looked on season after season with a mixture of envy and hope.
