Up one level

by Adelaide B. Shaw

"Barns are iconic images, probably the most important buildings on a farm, housing animals, equipment, tools, fodder and grain. Each tells a story of those who now or did use these barns in their pursuit of making a living. Every barn tells a different story, some of success, some of failure, some in between, and some are retold as something else. I try to photograph every barn I see. It is my way of paying homage to those who fill our food basket."
