New Beginnings

W001By Penny Keala Bauer

Many years ago, I began photographing the hands of elders offering us symbolic gifts. This became The Gifts Project. The very first image/gift came in the form of these puffballs grown in the backyard of Nan in Albuquerque, New Mexico. This offering then and today remains a symbol for the seeds of new beginnings.

Imagine my delight when I first spoke to Annie at Deep Harvest Farm about the Six Bowls project… and she suggested the image of a bowl of seeds from the Deep Harvest gardens. Here she and Nathaniel offer seeds of other new beginnings. Thank you, Annie and Nathaniel!
