Portrait of My Father (2017)
This is a portrait photograph of my father, Fred Peckham, taken on his farm in Northern Pennsylvania in June 2017. My father grew up on an onion farm in Northern New Jersey, and used to tell me stories of picking lettuce and onions all night with his father and brother and other farm hands, then leaving at 3:00 a.m. in trucks to sell them in NYC.
