This Place, These People
In their book, This Place, These People: Life and Shadow on the Great Plains, David Stark, Arthur Lehman Professor of Sociology and International Affairs, and photographer Nancy Warner pair images of abandoned farms with the plain-spoken recollections of the people who still live in nearby communities. Exploring a way of life that continues to adapt in the face of wrenching change, they evoke memories, emotions and open-ended questions on the relationship between people and their land.
