New Book: Sending Milk by FV-member Skye Chalmers
Each morning before the sun rises, 365 days a year, the dairy farmers who bind our communities are at work. It’s hard, often thankless work, with little financial incentive but a long and deeply proud history that stretches generations. Their farms display a harmonious balance between land, machine, animal and farmer and their passion and ingenuity are what keep them successful. These are the lives captured in Sending Milk, a collection of arresting black and white photographs of the dairy farms of the northeast.
Skye Chalmers, a Vermont native, has brought his keenly honed eye and deep love of the land to this project and created a work of documentary photography at its finest. Sending Milk captures all aspects of dairy life – the families, the cows, the fields and barns, the equipment, the stunningly sublime and the hardships. An introduction by award-winning Vermont author, educator, and journalist Stephen Kiernan is the only text in this volume. The images speak for themselves.
Skye Chalmers has been photographing New England for two decades. His photographs have appeared in The New York Times, Boston Globe, Yankee Magazine, Maine Magazine, Men’s Journal, National Geographic Traveler, Snowboarder Magazine, Skiing, and dozens more. His books of photographs include Vermont Dogs and ZAZA, a study of Barbara Kauffman and her sculptures. Chalmers makes his home in Weston, Vermont, with his wife and two children.
