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.”

The event, funded by the student organization National Press Photographers Association Ohio University, School of Visual Communication, and SAC, is free and open to the public.
