Farmers work the land, pray for rain, struggle with feed prices, and care for their animals nearly every single day of their lives — often with two or three other generations of family by their side.

There is a solemnity to the farmers, every one of them. As I traveled to farms around the country, I learned of the perennial challenges: If it's a bumper corn crop nationwide, corn prices go down, way down. And in a drought, hay can become too expensive to keep all the animals fed through the winter. Not one farmer spoke of their livelihood as a sure thing. Not one of them had it made.

And yet — and this is what really attracted me to photograph them — the farmers radiate a deep sense of grace and resilience.

My team and I photographed over 40 farmers and ranchers in preparation for the gallery opening of "The Farmers" at Town restaurant in our hometown of Carbondale, Colorado, and the Photoville photo festival in New York City.

We shot the images with the Canon EOS 5D Mark III, EOS 6D, EOS-1D C and EOS-1D X cameras and EF lenses, and printed them with the Canon imagePROGRAF iPF8400 printer in our studio. We printed on Canon's Artistic Matte Canvas paper as gallery wraps, so the viewers could connect directly to the farmer portraits, without the shield of glass that so often separates us from the subjects.

Taking Passion To Print Featuring Tyler Stableford

TAKING PASSION TO PRINT FEATURING TYLER STABLEFORD

In today’s digital age, the power of a print is often forgotten. In this video, Tyler Stableford explains how an hdAlbum, printed on the DreamLabo 5000 is a big part of his business. “The thing that still excites me and something I can’t explain or quantify is how an image comes to life more in the printed form. It's so hard to translate sometimes the emotion of a moment to a printed image, but Canon's DreamLabo 5000 printer has helped me bridge that gap" says Tyler Stableford.
