Farm Photography by Larry Schwarm
The New Farmers Project by Photographer Bryon Darby, Desinger Tim Hossler, and Sociologist Paul Stock.
September 29, 2018–March 10, 2019

What does the Kansas farm look like in 2018' What is life like for the fifth-generation farmer, working land she has inherited from her parents' What is life like for the first-generation, sustainable farmer' How has the land itself changed, as water resources diminish but technological innovations become more available' Kansas Land features the recent work of two Kansas photographers, Bryon Darby and Larry Schwarm, in order to chronicle the life of farmers and the land they work in light of the social, economic, and environmental challenges of 2018. Both Schwarm and Darby’s photographs come from larger collaborative projects sponsored by different departments at the University of Kansas. These projects aimed at connecting the arts, environmental sciences, and sociology with the everyday lives of Kansans. WAM is eager to further the aims of these projects by exhibiting the photographs of Darby and Schwarm together.
