|About the book
« Thinking about ‘shelter’ and the idea of ‘home’, I re-read a book I have called « Farming, Always Farming » that my family’s publishing company printed in 1972. It’s a nice book of text and images of traditional farms in the area I’m from. I adapted the title from that. So, this book is composed from photos of the book I took while reading it one afternoon. I added a coarse halftone dot over it all to obscure the text and reduce the imagery to abstract shapes and tones. »
