: This wild skunk cabbage was photographed by Joe Munroe on Louis Broomfield's famous Malabar Farm near Lucas, Ohio, 1952. Bromfield was an accomplished author and journalist with a passion for farming. He advocated a subsistence way of farming and practiced new techniques designed to have less impact on the environment. 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.
