A series concerning the Driftless Area of Wisconsin by photographer Paul Yurkovich. While intent on documenting the land itself, Yurkovich takes the word “driftless” literally (to be unmoving/unchanging) as he seeks to capture a sense of permanence and commonplace. As he explains:
“After moving to Madison, Wisconsin, I became caught up by the landscape that lies west of town. Upon learning this landscape held the poetic name of The Driftless Area (an area of land that escaped glaciation in the last glacial period), I became engrossed. This discovery coincided with myself, after much time moving around, finally becoming content with where I lived. In a sense, becoming driftless.”
