Danny Wilcox Frazier, author of Driftless: Photographs from Iowa, is interviewed in the current issue of
Photo-Eye. Mary Ann Redding writes, "Making pictures in rural Iowa for four years, Frazier knows firsthand the economic and cultural struggles currently playing out in the Midwest. The
black-and-white images poignantly capture the tension of lives in transition.
There are lots of guns, dead animals, and, similar to [Robert] Frank’s imagery, parades
and American flags permeate the pictures. The seemingly careless framing of
Frazier’s photographs shares the same poetic grittiness of Frank’s in that it
sets up a subconscious tension in the viewer."
