Yelling From The Lower Field presents the viewer with a possibility; an alternative to today’s urban and suburban culture. I feel that modern society tends to inhabit a loud world of pollution, technology and excess. We avoid human contact and confine ourselves to screens and devices. We are disconnected to our food and the land that grows it. Yelling From The Lower Field is not intended to romanticize a rural lifestyle, but to provide a possibility of something different—to depict an existence where we tread lightly on the earth beneath us.
