Statement

For me, photography is about wanting to know more, and these photographs are part of an attempt to know more about North Dakota.

In 1984 I moved from St. Paul to North Dakota to take my first job as a photographer at The Minot Daily News. Since then I've been exploring the state with my camera, documenting what I see. These are 25 of my favorite images. Each image captures a compelling moment that revealed something significant about the state to me.

They remind me what a joy and privilege it is to be a photographer.
