We Feed The World, the Gaia Foundation’s global photography exhibition about smallholder farmers and fisherfolk around the world, has landed at Frome in Somerset.
From 2015 to 2018, Nick and 46 other award winning photographers including Graciella Iturbide, Rankin, and Rena Effendi, took the time to document the lives of 50 farming communities across six continents.
Nick’s work focused specifically on the The Quechua community, called El Choro, a village of 400 people approx. 4 hours drive into the mountains from Bolivia’s Cochabamba city. At 5000m high up in the mountains, the community is reviving their indigenous culture, traditions, autonomy and food sovereignty. Succeeding in becoming self-sufficient in many varieties of potato, quinoa, maize and other crops, El Choro is a beautiful example of the We Feed The World’s mission to celebrate the farmers and the land that feeds us.
We Feed The World is showing across two Frome venues -The Whittox Gallery, and The Gallery at The Station until September 10th.
