MY DAKOTA: Time’s Best of 2012

“Grieving after her brother’s death, Norris Webb goes on a quest, returning to South Dakota, where she grew up…She probes symbols of time passing: apples fallen in the dirt, weathered paint on the wall of a motel, a field of sunflowers dried and browned in the autumn. The images are personal but never obscure. Norris Webb’s spare, poetic text speaks to anyone who has experienced the puzzlement and struggle that comes with loss.” 

—Holly Stuart Hughes, editor, Photo District News, from “Time’s Best of 2012: The Photobooks We Loved.”
