Multimedia artist Barry Phipps has been traveling the state and taking photographs for the last six years. Now we can see Iowa through his lens in the new book Between Gravity and What Cheer: Iowa Photographs.
On this Talk of Iowa, host Charity Nebbe sits down with Phipps to learn what attracted him about Iowa small towns and how his work offers a counter-narrative about rural America.
The official book release will take place on Thursday, May 3 at 5:30 pm at Filmscene in Iowa City. It will include a book-signing and a slideshow lecture at 6 pm.
