2011 HCP Fellowship Honorable Mention: Christin Boggs
Slow & Steady, 2010
Slow & Steady explores the contemporary movement away from mass-produced food and towards creative alternatives that offer vitality and potency to participants and their surroundings. In the Greater Rochester Region, individuals have rejected convenience food to responsibly grow, prepare and share sustenance in cooperative groups. The photographs depict scenes from community gardens, community supported agriculture (CSA) farms, and farmers markets. Here exists a community of resourceful people, coming together in pursuit of good food. Slow & Steady points to one of the ways in which art can effect social change through the representation of healthy and sustainable food practices.
