Today’s daily Photojournalism Links collection highlights Danny Wilcox Frazier’s work from America’s heartland. The photographer spoke to National Geographic’s PROOF blog about documenting rural reality in the Midwest from his home state of Iowa and the Badlands of South Dakota to urban abandonment in Detroit. These gritty but beautiful black-and-white pictures are evidence that Wilcox Frazier is a true chronicler of unseen or forgotten parts of America.
