Village View Farm 1904 [West Central Iowa 2006]

One in a series entitled Portraits: Faces and Profiles of Utility

Pictured this way, this particular subject grouping becomes iconic – almost too much so perhaps. For me it is precisely this issue. This is the quintessential farmstead of 1904 pictured in 2006. Do we really see these farmsteads as symbols anymore or has this way of life receded into personal memory only?

    I’ve been working on prints from this series and now have a couple of them framed – working on getting the series edited and submitted to some galleries for exhibition… Maybe….
