When David Plowden travelled from the American East Coast to the Midwest, he was stunned by the landscape. In the years that followed he became enthralled by its vast open spaces and wildly changing skies. Fields of wheat, grain and corn, farms and grain stores became the subjects of his photographs.
The best of his work over the past thirty-five years is presented here in Heartland: The Plains and the Prairie, impeccably reproduced in a generous format that does justice to the work of one of America's foremost photographers and printmakers.
David Plowden is the author of more than twenty photography books, including the "magnificent" (The Economist) Bridges (ISBN 978 0 393 05056 1), the "remarkably evocative" (The Architectural Review) The American Barn (ISBN 978 0 393 02557 6), A Handful of Dust (ISBN 978 0 393 06033 1), the "perfect in every detail" (Amateur Photographer), and most recently, Vanishing Point (ISBN 978 0 393 06254 0).
