Having grown up in Central Illinois, Paul Elledge has a true appreciation for farming - the hard work and the bountiful yields. Shortly before the lock-down that resulted from COVID-19, Paul made the acquaintance of a farmer whose land is near Paul's Southern Illinois home. That farmer is Jim Young - a wonderful person who happens to own Paul's favorite vintage tractor. Since meeting Jim, Paul has (while taking precautions) begun shooting him and his son, Kevin. As a family, the Youngs manage over 600 acres of no-till crops. We're excited to share the beginnng of what will become a long-term collaboration between Paul and the Young family. Click here to view more of the beautiful images from this shoot.
