MFA 2nd Year, Photography
My current project focuses on my family’s farm in eastern North Dakota. Through its 120 years, the farm has passed smoothly from one generation of Christianson men to the next. Now, this tradition is in danger of being broken, as no member of my generation has even expressed an interest in farming. Using old photographs, letters, journals, farm logs, and maps, I am combining them with my contemporary images to trace this heritage and history and the implications of its demise.
