Got Work To Do
DESCRIPTIONAdam is a Youtube farmer - that is to say, he learned farming by watching Youtube videos. I spent a day with him while he was putting together a water-driven irrigation pivot that he had bought from a farmer in Nebraska. He has this beat up Nissan that was given to him for free that he uses as his farm truck. He had that aqua tint on the top of the windshield that was popular back in the '90s that, combined with the thick layer of dust on everything in the car, lent the lighting a vintage feel. I love being a vessel for the viewer by putting them in the middle of the action and giving them an intimate glimpse into someone's unique day-to-day life.
