A fantastic gift of photographs of farmers and farms of the Northeast. A rich portrait of our culture. — Chris Morrow

Description


Each morning before the sun rises, 365 days a year, the dairy farmers who bind our communities are at work. It’s hard, often thankless work, with little financial incentive but a long and deeply proud history that stretches generations. Their farms display a harmonious balance between land, machine, animal and farmer and their passion and ingenuity are what keep them successful. These are the lives captured in Sending Milk, a collection of arresting black and white photographs of the dairy farms of the northeast.



Skye Chalmers, a Vermont native, has brought his keenly honed eye and deep love of the land to this project and created a work of documentary photography at its finest. Sending Milk captures all aspects of dairy life – the families, the cows, the fields and barns, the equipment, the stunningly sublime and the hardships. An introduction by award-winning Vermont author, educator, and journalist Stephen Kiernan is the only text in this volume. The images speak for themselves.
