The Vermont Female Farmers photography exhibition continues through October at Billings Farm

Aug. 19-Oct. 31—WOODSTOCK— Vermont Female Farmers is a showcase of 45 captivating photographs by the talented JuanCarlos González. This exhibition, held in the Historic Barn at Billings Farm, will run from Aug. 19 to Oct. 31. It is an ode to the invaluable contributions made by women farmers to Vermont’s culture, identity, and economy. Through his lens, González has documented the daily lives of 38 farmers, capturing their labor, passion, and the essence of their livelihood. 

The exhibition title, Vermont Female Farmers, expresses the three main elements portrayed in each photograph. González’s portraits of women who work in the farming industry tells a story of farming, showcasing the products or animals that are nurtured on these farms. Moreover, the backdrop of Vermont’s picturesque landscapes adds to the appeal of these photographs, emphasizing the beauty of the landscape of Vermont.

Within each composition, González captures the uniqueness of each farm, shedding light on the diverse tales behind them. Through these photographs, the exhibition shines a spotlight on the contributions of the women who shape the agricultural landscape of Vermont, a viewpoint that has been historically underrepresented.

JuanCarlos González, the artist behind this exhibition, is a photojournalist and storyteller. Originally from Maunabo, Puerto Rico, González currently resides in Plymouth, Vermont. His work has been featured in prestigious publications such as National Geographic, Vogue Italia, the Boston Globe, and Leica Fotografie International. With an innate ability to capture the essence of his subjects, González brings the stories of Vermont’s female farmers to life through his lens.
