Lawrence Braun: Farm hand, photographer

Commercial photographer Lawrence Braun epitomizes young farmers full of passion and hope for a more sustainable lifestyle. Like many, he's a multi-tasker. He left the West Coast just as the bottom of the real estate market fell out. Now he tends to veggies on the community-supported Ant Hill Farm with a group of like-minded people living within striking distance of New York City. Instead of showcasing high-priced homes, he's using his camera to chronicle the central role food plays in people's lives.
