The Prairie: Flat Land, Spacious Skies


I was born and raised not far from where these images were taken. To me the prairie in Central Illinois is home. Some like to photograph mountains and valleys, and they are scenic. But for me, the soul satisfying images are those of flat land and big skies. This series is meaningful to me for another reason. I was in the area for my mother's memorial service and it was a solace to me to take my camera and spend a day in the fields. It brought back memories, a sense of place, and a sense of person.
