Abandonings: Photographs of Otter Tail County, Minnesota
Abandonings: Photographs of Otter Tail County, Minnesota, chronicles a vanishing manifestation of the American dream. In this extraordinarily evocative pictorial essay, photographer Maxwell MacKenzie revisits the place of his birth, an agricultural community on the edge of the Great Plains. Now standing in ruins are the barns, houses, and schools erected by the Swedish and Norwegian immigrants who settled the region in the second half of the 19th century and began to desert during the Depression years.
With a photographer's eye, an architect's insight, and a native son's passion, MacKenzie has recorded these eloquent "abandonings" in breathtaking full-color panoramas. The images speak to anyone who appreciates the simple beauty of America's rural landscape.
