The current photo exhibit at the Polk County Heritage Gallery will have you rethinking the traditional image of farmers. The focus of FarmHer is the vital role of women in agriculture, a passion of local photographer Marji Guyler-Alaniz. The project is both a growing online gallery and a brand for supportive merchandise at FarmHer.com.
“By infusing images of women in agriculture into farm imagery, we can change the way people perceive a farmer,” Guyler-Alaniz recently told iamagazine, dsm’s statewide sister publication. Guyler-Alaniz and the FarmHer project will be featured in the next issue of ia, which will be published Oct. 6.
