Congratulations to “My Dakota” for being one of Photo-Eye’s BEST BOOKS OF 2012.–Alex Webb

“A year after photographer and writer Rebecca Norris Webb began a personal project photographing the vast landscape in her home state, South Dakota, her brother died suddenly of heart failure. A friend suggested she channel her grief into the project and transform it into an elegy for her lost sibling. The photographs and text she wrote are collected in this poetic and highly personal book that is at once peaceful and unsettling.”——PDN Editors, from Photo-Eye BEST BOOKS OF 2012
