The Heart of the Farm

Since the late 1990s, photographers Louise Abbott and Neils Jensen have travelled thousands of miles in the Eastern Townships of Quebec in their quest to document the remnants of the historic agricultural landscape in the form of barns, fences and silos. The Heart of the Farm features more than 350 of their evocative photos, along with more than 50 rare archival images. In addition, Abbott writes about the evolution of barns from log to steel and the evolution of fences from wood to wire.
