Every week I have the great delight of volunteering with a number of local farmers at the Montpelier Farmers Market. This time of year the fruits—and vegetables—of their considerable labors are abundant and delicious. I often photograph the produce in full, glorious color but last week felt it was even more appropriate to photograph the hands that grow, harvest, and make all that produce. Click on any image to see it more fully. Thank you farmers!
And serendipitously, a wonderful piece showed up in the New York Times this morning showing the hands of many working people. I recommend this photographic essay by Damon Winter to you.
We depend on others for so much in life. There hands—clean, smooth, worn or dirty—show that fact so clearly.
this is maybe one of your best ever… ; make the cards from these! they’re fab. xoxoxoxo

Love this John! The hands that feed us.
Thank you, Linda! It was inspiring to see their hands. I did not have much time to actually work at making the photos but was pleased with them regardless.
Beautiful! … in idea and image.
Many thanks! You know how it is when something just feel perfect!
Love these images. Could be lots of different Farmers Markets with all that color and hardworking hands, but I feel like I’ve been to this great market now. Lucky you to get to go often!
The hands and the fruits of their labors are remarkable…and much appreciated. Thanks for taking us to the Montpelier Farmers Market with your camera in your hand. The NYT article is superb as well. Thanks!
