Life on the land

Photo blogging: Thirteen years ago, Chicago Tribune photographer Scott Strazzante began visiting and photographing life on a family farm near Lockport, Illinois. In 2002, Strazzante and a reporter documented the sale and closing of the farm. Last March, Strazzante returned to the property to photograph the subdivision that now sits on the 119-acre site. Photos of past and present are presented side by side and the similarities of life then and now are eerily similar. It’s almost as if the land itself has dictated how life upon it must be conducted. Check out Another Country by Scott Strazzante.

So sad - even with the amusing slideshow on the Trib website.
