I’m honored to have a selection of images from Uprooted included in the Spring 2018 edition of Rootstalk: A Prairie Journal of Culture, Science, and the Arts, published by the Center for Prairie Studies at Grinnell College. Rootstalk contains essays, poetry, photography, podcasts, and multi-media features covering topics as diverse as history of place, starting a farm-to-table coffee shop, life growing up in an early homesteading family in Kansas, and new crop seed varieties.

The Rootstalk editors chose several of my night scenes that reflect a dark undercurrent within. If you are interested in rural Midwestern culture, Rootstalk is a must-read!
