Joe Munroe Archive
Description: In this 1947 photograph by Joe Munroe, a teenaged farm girl feeds her chickens by hand. Chickens play an integral role on the farm, providing a fresh supply of meat and eggs. Joe Munroe's career began in 1939 at the Cranbrook Academy of Art. He served in the Air Force during World War II and then joined Cincinnati-based Farm Quarterly magazine. Though raised in Detroit, agriculture became an important subject of Joe's photographs. He moved to California in 1955 and free-lanced, taking magazine assignments and selling his own work.
