I want to go to there

wanderer above the hoodoos

I recently discovered this photographer, Heinrick Oldhauser, who lives in Oregon. His photos really make me want to dive into the spaces created and feelings they invoke. Like a glimpse back into the dust bowl his images invoke the spirit of the farmer, or wanderer. For me growing up near farming towns in Southern Ohio, I had a dream of what it would be like to live on a farm. Although I know this fantasy is no where near the reality of farm life, especially early century farm life, I still fantasize about being Laura Ingalls, and these photos are a snapshot of what I think it would be like. Muted tones of cotton clothing on the golden fields with the wind blowing in your hair.

Hello Lauren! Thank you for the feature.

Having grown up in a farming community in Michigan, I can relate to your sentimentality for the midwest. And speaking as somebody who's still farming, I can say that the fantasy and dreams certainly are a part of it.

Keep up the beautiful painting and designing!
