Photographing Small Town America

This weekend I continued an ongoing photo series I am working on-which documents Rural and Small Town America.

I stopped by a Seminary Picnic, located in Perryville, Mo, which is about an hour and a half from St. Louis. This year I photographed the grounds at night, complete with all day bingo, game, and inexpensive food and beer.

I loved seeing how tight-nit a community this was, and how much the town looks forward to the yearly event. I am glad to be continuing this project, even intermittently, and look forward to my future documentation of small town America.
