January/February 2015

Alicia Armentrout showcases and documents the things we overlook every day, be that tranquil rural outposts, dried out seed pods, wildflowers in ditches, and other outliers, loners, and weeds, in order to celebrate the individual and the unique. Her collection of pictures aim to remind everyone there’s plenty of grandeur to enjoy in the Midwest. These pictures also showcase how culture intersects with our environs to create our understanding of "us." The Allwine Prairie, located near Bennington, NE, provided a backdrop to tell both a Midwest kind of story, as well as a broader one.
