Design Trust for Public Space
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.
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.
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 using baby pools to grow fresh food, Rob's photographs reveal not only the breadth of agricultural activity in a dense urban environment, but also the people nurturing these vibrant places.
