Late last summer, I went on a photo shoot along US Highway 12 between the Twin Cities of Minnesota and eastern South Dakota. As you get out of the prosperous cities, the abandoned farms and other structures pertinent to the way farming was done in the first half of the 20th Century increasingly dot the landscape. Processing this in black and white made me more mindful of the evocative photos of the Depression shot by such great American photographers as Dorothea Lange and Walker Evans.
