From Mining Minerals To Mining Fields | Mining Industrial Photographer James Hodgins
The season is turning green and with that another industry is starting the long process of mining the environment for grains and vegetables. The preparation of soil for the crops is underway all around us here in Ontario. It’s a stark contrast photographing the Agricultural Industry but I also see a lot of similarities during my photography sessions. Long hours, hard work, safety, planning, production, the use of heavy equipment are just a fraction of the similarities. It’s a cycle in itself as the minerals mined from the earth are used to create the products and equipment needed to farm the soil for the food we need in order to complete the cycle over and over.
I look forward to spending more time in the Agricultural Industry photographing it’s people, processes and facility’s here in Ontario. When you are Top Side, the sun is always shining even if it isn’t.
