Iowa, United States
This campaign season, I went back home to Iowa. Not to cover the presidential hopefuls, no. I turned my camera away from the politics and toward the people and places of the Hawkeye State. Over the course of six months, I travelled to each Iowa county in a feat known as the "Full Grassley," an endeavor named for the long-time Iowa Republican senator wherein candidates make a point to visit each of Iowa's 99 counties in order to prove themselves worthy of a caucus win. I wasn't looking for votes at a local town hall or fish fry—rather, I searched for the stories in the individuals and communities that make Iowa the unique, complicated, and nuanced place it is.
