Guy Mendes’ photograph of Wendell Berry has been featured on the cover of the May/June 2012 edition of Humanities, the magazine of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
Wendell Berry, a farmer/writer/conservationist who lives in Henry County, Kentucky, has been honored with the distinction of delivering the 2012 Jefferson Lecture on April 23 in Washington, D.C. Berry is a prolific and passionate observer of American society, advocate for environmental responsibility, and all-around wise man. He is also a close friend of Guy Mendes. Look how pleasant he looks in this picture.
