Excerpt from Carry Me Ohio: “For the past ten years, I have made pictures of the people of this region as they attempt to recover in the aftermath of extractive industry. What I have discovered transcends any stereotypes – despite circumstances, these proud Americans persevere and cling to family, community, and land with admirable tenacity.”
