Leek and Potato Soup
‘Leek and Potato Soup’ is a documentary series based on rural life and farming in modern Britain. The project is specifically centred around Perth-based farmer, Andy Pedgrift, who owns and works on Northlees farm in Kinross. Throughout the series, the photographer acknowledges and challenges the generally romantic and unrealistic stereotypes when you think of a rural lifestyle on a farm. This is achieved by creating a ‘day in the life’ narrative, however there are photographs that may depict worry and stress as a nod to the very modern uncertainty that comes with farming now. The series is deliberately constructed as a whirlwind of positive and negative tones, in order to be construed as a realistic depiction of a current farm.
