Work in progress: Final Project

Location: Rich Hill, Mo.
I haven't started photographing my final project, but I've done most of the planning. All of the photography will take place on family land in Rich Hill, Mo., and while that isn't super far away (3.5 hours), I haven't had the time to make it down there yet. Hopefully I can one weekend before Thanksgiving break. My grandfather recently built a new house on the land that I am photographing, so I plan on staying there most of break and then just documenting what my family is doing then.

I talked to my aunt who is very active on the land, and she said she'd love to be interviewed. She said most of the harvesting is done already, but there may be something that comes up she and my uncle have to do on the farm while I'm there, and I'm free to photograph that.

I plan on interviewing my dad, my grandpa, my aunt and uncle, another uncle and my dad's cousin. I am going to photograph meaningful places on the land, as well as what my family is doing there now. I am also going to dig up old family photographs to add context to the ones I make. We've been talking a little about photo books in class, and I think that is what I want to make with my final materials. Interleaving photos of moments, farming, portraits and landscapes with family photos and interview quotes (maybe handwritten or photo-elicitation).
