The Hands That Feed Houston is a photo documentary created by Houston photographer, Amy Scott. This project celebrates the farmers and ranchers that feed Houston, a city of over 2.3 million, and the most racially and ethnically diverse city in the U.S. For the project, nine farmers and ranchers were selected to have their daily lives highlighted. Three days were spent with each individual, following their days and capturing the realities of food production on small and large scales.
"My hope is to help Houstonians connect with and get excited about knowing the farmers and ranchers that feed them each day,” said Amy Scott.
Amy Scott is a food and agricultural photographer based in Houston, TX. She was a small- scale vegetable farmer for seven years, and helped start the local urban farm Hope Farms, for Recipe For Success. The Hands That Feed Houston is a photo documentary project that has received funding through the Houston Arts Alliance and The City of Houston.
