The Soul of Our Soil
Photographs by
Georgia Landman
Exhibit: November 17, 2017 – January 21, 2018

This exhibit is part of Georgia Landman’s ongoing work to document several farms in Columbia County, NY. The farms share the philosophy of sustainable agriculture.

Landman (American) grew up in The Netherlands and moved to the US in 2001. She lives in Hudson, NY and has a studio in Chatham. A contemporary fine art and freelance photographer, she aims to instigate empathy through her photographs, contributing to human connection through art.
