Connecticut Farm Project


Jack McConnell is a prominent Hartford photographer.  He has been working on a project photographing Connecticut farmers.  A selection of his prints has been displayed
at the Hartford Public Library, where I met him at a reception.


One of Jack's subjects is John Cavanna of Cavanna Farms in Glastonbury.  His family farm produces the apples sold throughout Stop and Shop's Connecticut grocery stores.
John is also a Hartford police officer.

Nice with his portrait of John as a backdrop in your portrait of the farmer.

The match of these people and the photographs is wonderful. The set reminds me to obey the speed limit the next time I drive through Hartford.

I like the idea of documentary photography projects like that. (Though mine would never be of people. I leave the portraiture to you, as you are so good at it.)
