Publisher's Description
“Farming is often viewed through the lens of nostalgia and romanticized as a lost way of life that was more connected to nature. The farm fields were a fruitful way for me to situate the human in nature because it is within this interface that questions arise regarding our place in the natural world. Farmland is an exotic territory for most of us, despite the fundamental nature of farming as a precondition of our culture. As much as the idea of wilderness implies no human presence, these anthropogenic landscapes are reminders of our inescapable and constant interaction with the natural world.” excerpt from introduction, David Pollock, Fertile Geometry, 2011

Over a two year period, David Pollock photographed the farm fields of Saanich Peninsula on Southern Vancouver Island , Canada. The photographs often place us within a deep open space with a vantage point that directs our vision to the soil and presents the farm topography as a palimpsest upon which we discern the traces of farm work. They speak to us of the remnants of human actions in this landscape and situate us within a continuum of constant interaction with the natural world that is both physical and symbolic.
