Congratulations to Rebecca whose “My Dakota” work has been featured this week both in the award-winning environmental magazine, High Country News, and the LA Times Framework column, the latter as part of the group exhibition, “Looking at the Land,” curated by Flak’s Andy Adams. —Alex Webb

Excerpt from the HCN Q&A with Rebecca:

HCN: Lots of folks dismiss South Dakota as flyover country. Why does its landscape hold such a draw for you? And why is it important to share that with others?

Norris Webb: I’m thankful many people think of South Dakota as a flyover state!

Last year, when I drove north from Denver to the Black Hills, I was startled by how congested the I-25 corridor had become in just the past few years.  It was a relief to hit the Wyoming landscape, with its rich, familiar emptiness.

It’s hard to explain, but I don’t feel like myself unless I’m in the badlands, prairies, Black Hills or Missouri River valley of my home state.

Heading West to the Badlands to write and photograph. I am very much looking forward to the space and the silence and the solitude of South Dakota “off the grid.”—Rebecca Norris Webb
