“Three Little Cowboys,” 1978, growing up on a beef and bull-breeding ranch in Point Reyes Station, California.

The Stevens brothers, 10 years later; from left, Luke, Josh and Brad. Obviously, the family still likes Yorkies.

In Art Rogers’ series, “Yesterday and Today,” we see men, women and children as they were and as they are. Their grace, dignity and strength evokes a future as it hints of our common past—the ages of all lives.

North Carolina-born Rogers uses his art to document and help preserve the farms and ranches that built California’s North Bay communities generations ago. Open spaces are being replaced by sprawling developments. “The remaining farmlands in Marin are truly unique,” Rogers says. “They are part of the culture and legacy of the Bay Area. They are worth saving.”

His awards include fellowships from Guggenheim, National Endowment for the Arts and the Marin Arts Council. For the past 27 years, his visual record of the West Marin County rural community has appeared as “The Point Reyes Family Album” in the weekly “Point Reyes Light.”

Rogers, his wife and two daughters live in Point Reyes Station, Calif. His work is in collections of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, International Center of Photography in New York and Center for Creative Photography Archive in Tucson, Ariz.
