American Agriculture & Texture Books Published

Garrett Fisher has published two more aerial photography books: “American Texture: Canvas from the Sky” and “Field of Dreams: American Agriculture from the Sky.” Continuing the theme of locating unexpected data from artistic perspectives, both works focus on patterns, textures, and representations, as seen from above in an antique airplane, found either in wild American landscape or in traditional American agriculture. While the intention of farmers may be to make best use of their land for economic production, the result can be visually appealing and unexpected; however, we should almost expect as much as humans are motivated toward particular outcomes and our approach to maximizing use of private property is virtually universal. What is not necessarily expected is to see those similar patterns appear in nature, untouched by human influence, which causes reflective pondering as to the relationship between chaos, mathematical efficiency, and human behavior.
