Agnes Denes, Wheatfield - A Confrontation, 1982.
“Two acres of wheat planted and harvested by the artist on the Battery Park landfill, Manhattan, Summer 1982. After months of preparations, in May 1982, a 2-acre wheat field was planted on a landfill in lower Manhattan, two blocks from Wall Street and the World Trade Center, facing the Statue of Liberty. Two hundred truckloads of dirt were brought in and 285 furrows were dug by hand and cleared of rocks and garbage. The seeds were sown by hand and the furrows covered with soil. the field was maintained for four months, cleared of wheat smut, weeded, fertilized and sprayed against mildew fungus, and an irrigation system set up. the crop was harvested on August 16 and yielded over 1000 pounds of healthy, golden wheat.”

To all my photographer friends and followers, keep capturing and sharing images of our world with the rest of us. Not only of architecture, but of the sweeping vistas, amazing nature or intimate moments of everyday life. For many of us, they are the way we see the world that lies beyond. THANK YOU!
