Artist Statement

Artist, Carla Rae Johnson (wearing a sandwich-board) solicits visitors to “take home a memento of your day at the farm: it’s the ultimate photo-op!” With a large-format view-camera, photographer, Howard Goodman, clicks the shutter on visitors as they pose against a beautiful backdrop of farm and woods.  Each participant is presented an envelope containing their memento/print. They are also given a specific time at which they may open the envelope. (The “Obscura” process requires seven hours to develop.)  A delightful surprise will greet those who wait!
