Victory Garden of Tomorrow - Video Bio by Matt Treager

This past fall, I was commissioned by Joe Wirtheim of Victory Garden of Tomorrow to also create a short bio video to accompany the information on his website. Given the fact that we both were in Korea and not the US, it made for some interesting workarounds in the production. Despite the challenges, I think it turned out rather nicely. 

In his vintage propaganda style, Joe addresses the need for sustainable and healthy farming practices by designing products that inspire and give a call to action for a better tomorrow. Enjoy the video below!

As an effort to build my portfolio up with more portraits, I've been taking portraits of friends and acquaintances in my down time in Jeonju. I had been planning on taking an environmental portrait of Joe, owner and artist at Victory Gardens of Tomorrow. His work advocates for sustainable farming practices, such as urban gardening and locally grown produce. I got a fire put under my butt to get a shot sooner rather than later when he approached me about commissioning a piece to appear on the blog, as his work is being featured in an upcoming article. We found an urban garden in Jeonju (they're EVERYWHERE) and set to work. Here's some of the finals - enjoy!
