Essay for book: Between Planting and Picking, Sandi Haber Fifield (Charta, 2011)

This past summer, I wrote an essay for Sandi Haber Fifield's new book Between Planting and Picking (Charta). Now, just in time to "think spring," I am excited to announce that it has been published! My afterword is joined by a foreword by Dominique Browning, former editor-in-chief of House & Garden and author of many fine books, and of course Sandi's splendid photographs. It's quite amazing to see this project come to fruition and know that the tome is out there in the world.

Sandi will have an exhibition of this work at Rick Wester Fine Art (March 3 - April 16, more info and images here) and work will also be on display at AIPAD (March 17 - 20). See a sneak peak of the series on her website and peruse the book
virtually via photo-eye's book tease.

Here is the publisher's description of the book:

Photographer Sandi Haber Fifield reveals the quiet moments and unexpected beauty that define the simple life of a small farm. Inspired by the 'farm to table' ethos, the artist spent two growing seasons documenting rural life from California to Massachusetts.
