Description:
A cropped image of a rusted tractor. The tractor frame is multicolored with shades of aqua, green, yellow, and red.
Historical Context:
"Tractors have always been a part of my life. To some, a tractor is simply part of a farmer's world. Over time, tractors are no longer necessary for contemporary life and are therefore less appreciated. The evidence of work, whether rust or dents, yields an individuality to each model of tractor. With my images, I am revealing the complex details within each tractor. My portrait style shows the unique designs and use of each tractor. My photographs act toward preservation of the older generation model tractors. My intent is that they not be forgotten." -Maria Kirch
