If there are diverse kinds of knowledge and ways of knowing place, then we need to learn to value the different ways each of us sees a single place that is significant, but differently so, for each perspective.

Vanessa Winship: she dances on jackson « Previous | |Next »
May 28, 2013

Vanessa Winship is a British photojournalist who lived for 10 years in the Balkans and Turkey when she won the prestigious 2011 Henri Cartier-Bresson International Award. This funded the long journey around the United States in 2011 to rummage in the rubble of the American dream.

This resulted in a black and white book of photographs of stark landscapes of America’s heartlands—and the isolated figures that reside within them. These were made with a large format camera, and are touched with melancholy:

The work in her book, She Dances on Jackson, consists of portraits of predominantly young people interspersed with the bleak landscapes

The loneliness and melancholy in American life is created by the pursuit of the American dream.
