Ghosts of the Northern Plains

Stephen Henry, MD

The farmland of the northern plains is dotted with abandoned farmsteads surrounded by large tracts of corn, soy, beets, or just fallow land. These lonesome structures stand, often containing personal possessions, as a memorial to the families who worked the land. Where are the families now? It’s obvious where some of them are, but what of the living? Where do the memories go?

Dr Henry has spent many days during the past few years ranging out from Fargo, ND, photographing these places in order to help remember them after they are gone. Dr Henry is retired from The Permanente Medical Group as Chief of Urology at the San Jose Medical Center. More of his work can be seen at: www.henryimages.net.
