Midwest Mercy, 2008

A series of 10 large format photographs. 4"x 5" color negatives scanned and printed on archival pigment paper, 40"x 50" edition of 5.

These works are pursuits into the politics of rural existence, which are so often subsumed by the current contemporary fervor on debates about urban cultures. Conceived in Mineral Point, Wisconsin, this inquiry included extended walks that explored the isolation of rural living.
