Boonville brings together images from six iconographic American towns of the same name in an effort to present a single, unifying view of America.
Having grown up in a quintessentially American small town myself, my own memories and experiences informed the way I viewed and approached these places. By living in each of the six Boonvilles for approximately two months each, I was able to fully immerse myself in the life of each of these communities.
Whether in New York, Indiana or California, each Boonville possesses archetypal American qualities. And while each town has its own unique character, when presented as a whole, they embody a stark perspective of the typical American small town.
