CLIENT: GTech (Growth Through Energy and Community Health)
Photographic documentation of local community event
Each year, GTech and community members in Homewood, PA, plant sunflowers in abandoned lots to reinvigorate the soil. Sunflowers are often used to remediate soils that have lost quality due to pollution and improper management. I was asked to photograph one of the sunflower harvest events in the fall. Community residents and volunteers came to uproot hundreds of spent flowers, removing seeds for future planting.
