Oklahoma

I grew up in a little town called Ada. Now that I live out of state I tend to romanticize my home. The rough rural landscape, small town, and big skies take me back to a time of innocence and freedom. I think about the miles of back roads we would explore while drinking and shooting guns. I think about all the secret water holes that relieved us in the sweltering hot summers. I remember the crickets, frogs, and locusts that sung me to sleep.

I also remember the deep economic divide that separated the rich from the working class. The police will hassle anyone at anytime, and there’s a good chance you’ll see a fight if you go to the town bar. Racism still exists. Our Native American community is finally doing better, but lord knows they went through hell to get a little equality.

I had questions when I was young. People in small town America don’t like questions. They don’t like being challenged, but this series isn’t about exposing the under belly. I want to show all perspectives. This series is very personal to me. Some of the people you see are my family members. You're seeing my past, and present. This is how I see Oklahoma, and this is what I think is beautiful.
