Voices from the Land brings together black and white photographic portraits and excerpts from interviews with farmers across the Yorkshire Dales. With timeless images and thought-provoking words, it provides insights into the current state of farming, climate and the environment, and shares the farmers' hopes and concerns about the future.
The work on show at the Station is drawn from a larger collection of images, audio recordings and writing made over almost two years by writer Harriet Fraser and photographer Rob Fraser for the Yorkshire Dales Farmer Network, with the help of volunteers and students. The full collection is archived at the Dales Countryside Museum and at the University of Leeds. Voices from the Land has been made possible with funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund and the Yorkshire Dales National Park Sustainable Development Fund.
