Danny Wilcox Frazier spent 5 years documenting his home state. The thriving Midwestern family farm is no longer, having been choked by industrialized agriculture and replanted with subdivisions. A shifting economy, combined with an old-fashioned lifestyle that doesn’t translate from generation to generation, is forever altering the landscape.Danny Wilcox Frazier was born and raised in Iowa. He loves the place and worries over its lost way of life, even as he knows what it feels like to be a young man and want to leave. Carrying one camera and one lens, Frazier walks Iowa’s gravel roads, gets his feet wet in the milking barn, pulls up a stool in the small-town bar. Through black-and-white photographs, he makes a record of his own emotions as he travels through the state. What results is a complex portrait of a well-loved American landscape at a time of enormous cultural change. Published: May 19, 2009 http://mediastorm.com/publication/driftless-stories-from-iowa
- Intended Consequences
Joanthan Torgovnik gives a voice to victims of sexual violence. In 1994, in the East African nation of Rwanda, one million ethnic Tutsi people were slaughtered, in a genocide committed by their Hutu countrymen. But the scars left by these murderous militiamen go well beyond the numbers of the dead: they live on, in the lives of the women they held captive, raped – and left pregnant. Intended Consequences tells the stories of some of these women, victims of the sexual violence used as a weapon of war against them. Some 20,000 children were born as a result. Photojournalist Jonathan Torgovnik photographed and interviewed 30 women and their families, and has produced a piece of incredible complexity: how does a woman care for her child when it’s the son or daughter of the man who raped her?

- Take Care
A MediaStorm Workshop piece that shows how every story is important, even a training exercise. Take Care offers a glimpse into the life of Virginia Gandee, a 22-year-old woman who lives in Staten Island, New York. At first glance one is struck by Virgina’s bold appearance; her bright red hair and the dozen tattoos that canvas her body. When she was 15, Gin left home to marry a 20-year-old she met online. Two years later, she was a teenage mother. Today, Gin is raising her daughter as a single mother and pursuing her dream to become a nurse. Inside her family’s trailer, her caregiving goes beyond the love she has for her daughter. Take Care is a story about family, choices and reconciliation.
