About Funny Farm:
The aim of Funny Farm is to document the happenings and rhythms of two Albertan grain farmers during fall harvest. The project draws upon the approaches of lyrical sociology and visual ethnography for theoretical support. The images are black and white referencing rural rehabilitation, paying homage to early documentary photography and the Farm Security Administration (FSA). The hope is that this will inevitably lead others to question prevailing stigmas, the viability of grain farming as a profession, and the longevity and elasticity of rural heritage in Canada.
