The Young Farmers of Milton Keynes – By Sagar Kharecha

From early 2020 onwards I have, alongside Tim, Arthur and Connor, been documenting young local farmers who, amongst other duties, maintain the sheep at Campbell Park in Milton Keynes.

During late February of 2021 the sheep were to be round up and vaccinated. Soon enough I kindly received a message from Tim stating that he was enroute. I didn’t have long to prepare and quickly made my way down. I try my best to engage with all communities. As per my practice of hyperlocal documentary photography, I want to show that it is possible to create meaningful work with minimal budget and equipment.
