On Second Glance
About the BookWithout the evident drama of treacherous glaciers or mountain peaks, the midwestern landscape may--on first glance--appear commonplace. But those who look again will find an uncommon beauty as eloquent as that of the highest waterfall.
With this distinctive collection of photographs, Larry Kanfer uncovers anew the drama of the prairie's changing skies and seasons and celebrates the serene dignity of the Midwest. Kanfer points as well to the overlooked details of the heartland. From Flatville to Foosland, from Santa Claus to Montezuma, Kanfer creates a remarkable portrayal of the working farmland of Illinois and Indiana. His photographs take on the seasonal splendors of sky and silo, of setting sun and rising grain.
A compelling collection by one of the Midwest's finest landscape photographers, On Second Glance makes an elegant gift for anyone with friends or memories in the heartland.
