Hello! Yes, I am alive (somewhat), and I apologize for having disappeared for a bit…ok, it was a while. Graduate school is kicking my butt. That said, I do continue to follow when I have a quiet moment, and I have thoroughly enjoyed everyone’s work.
These photographs are from a project I am working on with Greyrock Farm in Cazenovia, NY. Matt Volz began the farm on his own about two years ago, and now he has a staff of seven full-time farmers, all between the ages of 25 and 31. None of them ever planned on being farmers. Though the images are only of some of the animals, if you would like to see the rest of what I have so far, they are on my newly created website: www.manuelamarinsalcedo.com
I have a demo reel assignment for my multimedia class this week where we have to demonstrate our filming and editing skills. My friend Annie Flanagan (check out her web site) and I chased a sunset across town in an attempt to get nice shots for a time lapse. Unfortunately we didn’t catch the sun actually going down, but the light was incredibly beautiful for about an hour after.
I met Bob at the Cayuga County Fair in Weedsport, N.Y. Bob and his wife, Carole, own and operate a milking goat farm about 45 minutes outside of Rochester. Three weeks before these photos were taken Bob had suffered a stroke. This was his first time back at the fairs with his goats.
