Project Space Gallery to feature farming photographic essay

SUNY Oneonta’s Project Space Gallery will soon feature ‘To Grow a Farmer,’ an ongoing photographic essay of farming families in upstate New York. There will be an opening reception with a bluegrass band and refreshments on April 19 from 5 to 7 p.m.

‘To Grow a Farmer’ explores a dichotomy between the farmer and the sustainability of farming. Wesley Bernard, Lecturer of Photography, is focusing on the future of generational farms with young family members who are deciding to stay on the farm and continue the tradition of farming, along with families or individuals who have just begun to operate a farm.
