I went through Ojai, CA about a month ago and met up with my talented friend Ben Bishop. We met almost 5 years ago during a class at The Maine Media Workshops, somehow we have managed to keep in touch. He showed me around town and at 8 in the morning we went to meet Steve Sprinkles at his farm called Rancho Del Pueblo just above the Ventura River.
When we arrived there was a group of volunteers picking vegetables for their CSA program. Most of the produce goes towards filling out CSAs as well as to the restaurant The Farmer and the Cook. I took these photos with my 4x5 field camera as they continued to work.
All of the above photos were shot with my 4x5 camera.
