Justin Kimball has been photographing in small towns in New York, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, and Ohio brought to the brink of obsolescence by the recent financial downturn, capturing their streets, residents, and landscapes. While imbued with social and political subtext, Kimball’s images carry a broader significance. In his depiction of communities faced with hardship, Kimball examines the persistence of hope and the concept of what it means to be human in our modern world. His photographs document a growing portion of the American landscape.
