The Medicine of Place
Description: In The Medicine of Place, the reserved, spartan poetry of J. Vincent Hanson mixes seamlessly with the deep-hued photographs of everyday objects by Chuck Norwood. The result is an earthy and sweat-scented homage to old-fashioned hard work and the beauty to be found in the minutia of a life well-lived and a place well-loved.
