To Disappear Entirely

Let’s say there is a farmer who likes to photograph his animals. He considers himself to be an amateur artist—nothing too fancy—a hobbyist, sure, but a passionate one. Each day, when he finishes work on the farm, he sets up his tripod and Canon EOS 750D, taking great pleasure in carefully arranging the frame. His favourite subjects are pigs, but he also enjoys photographing turkeys, sheep and cows.
