Photographing at Farm Sanctuary (repost from my old blog)

(originally posted on Aug 31, 2016 at https://joelandersonphotography.wordpress.com/2016/08/31/photographs-of-farm-sanctuary/

This month Farm Sanctuary featured some of my work along with that of other photographers working there in this article.  

For the past few years I’ve been going up to Farm Sanctuary in Watkins Glen, New York, to take portraits of the animals.  The peaceful, happy faces of the animals belie the horrors each has experienced before being rescued by Susie Coston and the rest of the Farm Sanctuary crew.   I donate money from my photographs to the Emergency Rescue Fund at Farm Sanctuary and I’ll continue to photograph there and at other sanctuaries including Indraloka in Pennsylvania and Poplar Springs in Maryland, and others I have on my schedule to visit this autumn and winter.

Snowy spring

It's been a snowy spring, as you can see from this photo of our little house, but the snow led to some new photographs for me.

The first is this black and white silver gelatin of a tree in our yard, with snow blown by the wind into the bark. Despite the high contrast graphic look this is a straight photograph.  The small building in the background is the original bake oven from the 1800s, along with an outhouse.  This photo, entitled The Bake Oven, is now available for purchase.
