Inter-veg-ton – An Intervention with Vegetables

One of the assignments for the photo class was to do an intervention – to interrupt the lives of people around you in a good and/or educational way.

When I’m not in class, I’m usually at the library, and, much like any other student, I find it terrifyingly easy to eat a lot of junk food when I study, because it’s so cheap and tasty.

Keeping in line with my work with the John Givens farm, I decided to hand out carrots to students hard at work studying for midterms and have my friend document it.


A carrot assembled with a note telling recipients about the benefits of eating carrots.


This girl was really excited about her snack.


Guy on the right: “Wait, is this real?”


The carrots were free but if I had paid for them, the look on the face of the girl on the left when she realized she was holding a free carrot would have been worth every penny.
