The Faces of a Farming Tradition

Categories: Midd Blogosphere

With a little extra time over his break this past spring, Levi Westerveld ’15 decided to pursue his interest in portraiture and begin sketching the local farmers around his home in the Dordogne region of southwestern France, where agricultural traditions are fast becoming a thing of the past. The sketches became an impressive exhibit at 51 Main, and here Levi talks about the people in the drawings, their individual stories, and his sketching process.
