In New Farmer, Bruce Eesly blurs fact and fiction to explore our extractive relationship to nature and the way history is made and perceived through images.

New Farmer appears to be a collection of documentary photographs published by an agribusiness in the 1960s to celebrate the success of the Green Revolution: genetic manipulation results in new crop varieties which result in bigger and better harvests. As the story unfolds however, there are cracks. The images hover just slightly beyond believability until finally turning absurd. They are not documentary photographs from the 1960s as the pamphlet suggests, but AI-generated images.
