American Farmer – Portraits by Paul Mobley
“American Farmer,” exhibited, Nov. 10 to Jan. 7, 2019, at the Chisholm Trail Heritage Center & Garis Gallery of the American West.
This traveling exhibit, from ExhibitsUSA/Mid-America Arts Alliance, celebrates the living spirit of our heartland through the faces and voices of the people who keep it alive.
Featuring 45 full-color and black and white portraits, and interviews with farmers across the United States – cattle ranchers to produce growers – American Farmer tells those honest and inspiring stories as only the true stewards of our land could share.
Photographer Paul Mobley’s journey across America provided him an insight into the country’s farm communities and a rural culture that remains rooted in the principles of tradition, family, integrity and hard work. His book, “American Farmer: The Heart of Our Country” was first published in 2008 and features more than 200 images and 45 interviews.
Images in this exhibit range from 16×20 inches to 60×40 inches in size.
