The Botany of Desire

The article is about the potato farming industry and how it’s changing. Potato farming has a lot of things wrong like, licensing, being considered a pesticide and breaking the law because of how you grow them. Newleaf potatoes notices that all of the industry has a problem being unsustainable, but this new effect of genetic engineering that makes the potatoes better with pesticides.

A propose a new campaign of showing the potatoes in a brighter light with different variations of potatoes. Potatoes have a great skin layer on the outside and I would want that to be present in the photos that I would take of them, but also show the sad rotten side of the potatoes if they didn’t have the new genetic engineering to protect them from pesticides.
