Farm Follows Function

Farm Follows Function


The first book published by West Country Modern is a photographic essay on agricultural architecture with a foreword by writer Mark Hooper.

Via the simple monochrome capture of various barn styles on the Dorset/ Devon borders the reader is challenged to reconsider these anonymous structures as ultimate extensions of modernist practice, reducing design down to pure functionalism. 

The shots were compiled over a 12 month period by local image maker Jethro Marshall. They are the work of an enthusiast, rather than romantic; the structures devoid of the bucolic trappings that dominate the usual presentation of rural life.

Part photobook part design story part social documentary, Farm Follows Function is ready to ship from July 1st, 2018.
