Plowden's 'Sense of Place' on display

Currently, David Plowden’s “A Sense of Place” exhibit can be seen now through Aug. 23 at the Appanoose County Historical & Coal Mining Museum in Centerville. Admission to the exhibit is only $4 for adults and $1 for students and allows admission to the museum’s regular exhibits as well.

This exhibit showcases a collection of 46 mounted black and white photographs of rural and small-town Iowa. Dating from the mid-1980s, at the height of the farm crisis, they document the disappearing face of the rural Iowa landscape.

For four decades, David Plowden has documented our country’s vanishing landscapes and artifacts. His iconic black and white photographs of landscapes, buildings and individuals collectively define life in 20th-century urban and rural America.

Since 1952, when he began photographing steam locomotives, this award-winning photographer has studied, documented and commented upon the transformation of America. He has described himself as “an archeologist with a camera” who has spent his life “one step ahead of the wrecking ball.”
