Humane Slaughter for Modern Farmer Magazine. 

Stories like this are the reason I became a photographer in the first place. I love getting pushed outside my comfort zone and experiencing something totally outside of my normal realm of existence. I am so thankful to Ayanna Quint for this assignment exploring “Humane Slaughter” at the amazing Prather Ranch in Northern California. Full project here. Of all the assignments i’ve ever had, this was by far the most gnarly and I am very proud of it. As somebody who was a vegetarian for several years, this was a really important thing to see. I always talk like “as long as I "know” where the meat came from, I’m ok with it.“ Well, now I really KNOW where this meat came from…

Thanks to Damien for the help on the assignment as well. I know that wasn’t super easy…

***I CANNOT STRESS ENOUGH HOW GRAPHIC THIS PROJECT IS. YOU"VE BEEN WARNED. ***

Stephen Allen Shoots for Modern Farmer Magazine

By Barbara Goldman

Orlando, Florida-based advertising and editorial corporate, architecture, health and lifestyle photographer Stephen Allen recently shot for the new magazine Modern Farmer  (@modfarmer)  for their fall issue. He did photography for a feature on “Space Farming: The Final Frontier” and shot on location at NASA in Florida. He had the chance to visit the Modern Farmer offices in Hudson, New York earlier this summer, where he took some iPhone images that he sent  to them as a thank you. They liked the images so much, they printed them on the “Letter from the Editor Page."  The issue is on newsstands now. The Modern Farmer blog will also feature Allen’s story and will coincide with a story about Modern Farmer in The New York Times as well.

My modern farmer magazine came in yesterday. The niece wouldn’t put it down because it had duckies, cows, horses, (and other animals), veggies and fruits that we pointed out together and said (multiple times),and a truck that looked like her dad’s truck.
