Women Farmers Photo Exhibit
Vail Public Library in partnership with Betty Ford Alpine Gardens’ Summer Exhibit “The Secret Life of Roots “ will host “Women Farmers Photo Exhibit’ by world-renowned National Geographic photographer Jim Richardson. Starting June 1st– October 30th in our Community Room.
Jim Richardson is a photographer for National Geographic Magazine and a contributing editor for its sister publication, TRAVELER Magazine. Richardson has photographed more than fifty stories for National Geographic.
Richardson’s work takes him around the world, from the tops of volcanic peaks to below the surface of the soil that provides our food, from the Arctic to the Antarctic and most places in between. ABC News Nightline produced a story about the long process of assembling a National Geographic coverage by following Richardson in the field and at National Geographic Society headquarters in Washington, D.C.
Richardson and his wife, Kathy, returned to Kansas in 1997, having lived 18 years in Denver. They now live in Lindsborg, Kansas, where they operate Small World: A Gallery of Arts and Ideas on the town’s Main Street.
