While public health officials have focused on the opioid epidemic in recent years, another epidemic has been brewing quietly, but vigorously, behind the scenes. Methamphetamine Anonymous is a project exploring the landscape of methamphetamine addiction in Northwest Arkansas. Through black and white photographs this work aims to capture the atmosphere of the region, exploring the contradictions between the state’s conservatism and the abuse, neglect, and malaise that stems from the widespread use of meth. Economically impoverished, and with a lack of opportunity and education in its rural communities, Arkansas is one of the largest consumers of methamphetamine in the country.
