Danny Wilcox Frazier Documents Iowa

I found a link to Mediastorm and discovered an amazing photographer from a nearby city in a neighboring state. I've done some time in Iowa doing church directories and it's not unlike Nebraska (where I lived in middle school and college) -- flat, mostly rural, lots of corn fields. I took a few snaps of rundown hotels and some other weird stuff, but this photographer's work shows what I was missing: the seemingly ordinary can be made amazing.

Media Storm is also a great site in general:
