The American Farmer Exhibit
On Tuesday, September 1, the Cherokee Strip Regional Heritage Center will open a new exhibit titled the American Farmer. The exhibit showcases 45 images selected from the works of photographer Paul Mobley. As he traveled across the United States, Mobley set out to capture the soul of the country’s farm communities by highlighting enduring rural traditions, family, integrity, close connections to the land, and hard work. The resulting images are a series of stunning portraits of farmers in their local settings, exploring how their day-to-day work affects the greater world. American Farmer will be on exhibit through October 20.
Paul Mobley is an American photographer whose career is grounded in his Midwestern roots. The book American Farmer: The Heart of our Country, with text by Katrina Fried, contains his photographic portraiture of farmers from 35 different states.
