Scott Dalton‘s work explores the people and places that inspired Gabriel García Márquez´s 1967 book One Hundred Years of Solitude, Dalton has created a body of work that represents the essence of Macondo, the fictional town in which the book is set.
Carry Me Ohio is Matt Eich´s exploration of the lives of residents in Southeastern Ohio. In an area left depressed and impoverished by the boom and subsequent bust of the industries of coal, salt, clay, and timber, the people live with a poverty rate of 27.4% and some $14,000 under the national average income.
