DISFARMING: Growing up in small-town Arkansas gave photographer Mike Disfarmer (born Mike Meyers) a good glimpse into the lives of farmers. He brings that knowledge to a new exhibit called "Mike Disfarmer: Photographs," on display now at Wesleyan University's Ezra and Cecile Zilkha Gallery. The exhibit captures the lives and emotions of rural Arkansans at the height of the Great Depression.
