Named ‘Women in Farming’, the exhibition will focus on those female farmers breaking the stereotypes, from an 18-year-old pig farmer to a 93-year-old farmer still working. It aims to represent all sectors of farming as it includes all the main forms of livestock and arable farming.
Photographer Billie Charity said that after realising “most of my photo subjects have been men” she thought it was time to “balance things up”. He added: “Initially a lot of the women were really reluctant to get involved, because they are used to staying behind the scenes. But after the photo shoot, they seemed really happy to have taken part.
“For a long time, I’ve been drawn to the livestock markets in Hay and Hereford, for the interesting conversations as well as the amazing photo opportunities.”
