Visiting Nathan Pearce in Southern Illinois

Photographer Nathan Pearce was kind enough to meet me for dinner in Olney, Illinois. It was great chatting about the Centroid Towns project and hearing about his latest iterations of Midwest Dirt. I'm quite taken with his photographs and they've been influential in my thinking on representing life in small midwestern towns. Y'all should pick up a copy of Midwest Dirt or his other artist books.

Nathan also indulged my need to photograph Olney's Dollar General at dusk for the typology of Dollar Generals in Centroid Towns.
