Tytia Habing grew up in rural Illinois, spent most of her adult life in the Cayman Islands and, after her son was born, realized she needed to come back to the farm. Habing's rustic lifestyle plays a key part in her ongoing series, Tharin, a documentary portrait of her son. She holds degrees in both horticulture and landscape architecture and those studies imbued her with a reverence for the natural world which is on full display in her luminous black and white images. Her photography is a visual expression of the free-range way she raises her children, a lifestyle she feels is quickly fading. She is currently producing a new series focused on the natural beauty of Midwest winters.
