From Roof to Table features 35 full-color photographs by Rob Stephenson that beautifully capture New York City's urban farms and gardens in all five boroughs.
The winner of the Design Trust's 2011 Photo Urbanism fellowship, Brooklyn-based photographer Rob Stephenson spent a year visiting over one hundred farms and gardens-from a farm in Staten Island with 10-foot-high stalks of corn to a church rooftop in Manhattan repurposing baby pools to grow fresh food. From Roof to Table: Photographs by Rob Stephenson provides a compelling overview of urban agriculture in NYC and underscores the power of photography to illuminate New York City's diverse public realm.
