mother lode looks at alternative means of agricultural production through an investigation of the practices of Wairarapa Eco Farm, an example of community supported agriculture. Images of the wild, unstructured, abundance of the farm are quite different from the usual ordering of garden aesthetics. These photographs are juxtaposed with digital drawings which point to the unseen aspects of the depicted flora.

Purchase mother lode.
