Elliot Ross, The Reckoning Days, A Solo Exhibition l The Center for Fine Art Photography
Over the last two years I have been exploring the idea of isolation through observing the lives of those who toil in the far-flung regions of the Earth to make ends meet. Deeply inspired by the lifestyles of the rural working class and informed by the empathetic eye of the Farm Security Administration photographers, namely Dorothea Lange and Walker Evans, I set out to create a visual reaction to the hardships and wagers of wheat harvest on the high plains of Northeast Colorado. The work is less of a document and more of a lyrical journey into the deep sense of faith, family, and connectedness to the land that these farmers hold closely.
In a time of instant gratification with social media and overnight shipping, I am left spellbound by the foresight, prudence and patience of these remarkable men and women. Society is generally removed from the processes in which bread and hundreds of other products reach our baskets. As a result, farmers - the epitome of the trustworthy, hardworking American - has been increasingly marginalized. We must protect, nurture and celebrate the salt of the earth. – Elliot Ross
