There's a farm in Bainbridge, Ohio that a young couple purchased in 1969. They had no idea that throughout their lives their children and grandchildren would return to the farm time and time again to celebrate, to grieve, and to spend countless moments walking down the gravel road and up into the hills as the morning fog rolls along the horizon. No one knew how significant the farm would become to each member of this family.
'The Farm' is a short visual poem about our emotional connections to places and the stages of life we find ourselves in when we visit and revisit these places.
