Marking The Land: Jim Dow in North Dakota

Marking the Land was named one of the ten best photo books of the year by American Photo magazine. Photographer Jim Dow is no stranger to critical acclaim, and he has a knack of making you feel sorrow and emptiness in his most current book which focuses its attention on the mass immigration of people from country to cities, and the desolation that fills the romantic countryside of the Northern Plains. It forces us all to rethink our conceptions of America’s forgotten frontier. Jim Dow began making pilgrimages to this remote territory in 1981 and, with a commission from the North Dakota Museum of Art, took photographs of the passing human presence on the land. This is a simple but evocative book full images of absolute barrenness.
