Lake and River Cities

Lake and River Cities
Joanne Price
United States, 2011

I have thought a bit about place and how our lives are effected and affected by our environments and what we do to connect to those environments. In Lake and River Cities, I explore Minneapolis, MN and Buffalo, NY in a composite image that explores the connections between my home in Minneapolis and my childhood home of Buffalo. The two cities had competing flour industries and both relied heavily on waterways to sustain and grow their cultures, industries and families. These two places diverge and converge in surprising ways that intersect my memories and experiences.

About sense of place in artist books

I am an artist. I find the ephemeral place in my art conjured up through practice. I sift through raw materials with my hopes and dreams, and ideas take form as if intended.
