: This 1953 photograph by Joe Munroe depicts the farming task of haying and bundling fields. The farm in the photo is the famous Malabar Farm, owned by Louis Bromfield, near Lucas, Ohio. More than half of the United States' acreage is used for livestock and crops. 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. View on Ohio Memory.
