Midwest Memoir | Interview with Michael Knapstein
“This is a very personal body of work for me. It is an homage to the area where I grew up, still, live and love. An area that I think has a unique personality and distinctive visual style. Honest. Modest. And often overlooked. My inspiration was to share my understanding of the Midwest as I see and remember it with new audiences around the world. I have been adding to this portfolio for nearly eight years; it is part romantic and nostalgic and equal parts realistic and documentary.”
