Watering the sheep   Save
Joe Munroe Archive
Description: Sheep crowd around a rancher as he tries to fill the water trough via a pipe connected to a water truck, photographed by Joe Munroe, 1966. Sheep were very useful because they can graze on sparse land or fields that other animals could not, effectively turning wasted space into meat or wool. 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.
