Terry Evans & Elizabeth Farnsworth: Dakota Is Everywhere



While exploring the North Dakota oil boom in our exploration of the effects of the oil boom on land and people, I also photographed abandoned buildings and wall murals. The idealized landscapes and bright representations of history suggest visions of North Dakota as it was. The White Earth Valley is charged with images of loss and hope as vivid as these murals. This is where rancher, Scott Davis, his daughter, Sara Jo, and his granddaughter, Ayla live with the ways the oil boom has changed their lives for both better and worse.
— Terry Evans, May 26, 2013
