This is a bit belated, but I realized I hadn’t posted about my end-of-summer project.

It turned out that AO had been hired by […]

The Middle of Nowhere

I put together a photo essay and brief article about the history of the crop, and a modern day asparagus farmer, for the Valley Advocate. There’s only one photo in the […]
