Danny Wilcox Frazier has documented people struggling to survive the economic shift that has devastated rural communities across his home state of Iowa for the past six years. His recent book, Driftless: Photographs from Iowa, was awarded the Center for Documentary Studies/Honickman First Book Prize in Photography. Photographer Robert Frank, author of The Americans, selected Frazier’s work for the prize. His foreign assignments have taken him to Afghanistan, India, Cuba, Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania, Nigeria, Ivory Coast, Kosovo and Mexico. In 2004, Frazier received a master’s degree from the University of Iowa, where he taught photojournalism during his graduate studies.
