ABOUT NANCY REXROTH
In the early 1970s, American photographer Nancy Rexroth (b. 1946) created a body of images that stands as a unique achievement in photographic history. Using a camera manufactured to be a toy, Rexroth rendered the rural towns of southeastern Ohio as a waking dream of white clapboard houses, innocent joy and half-remembered sadness. In 1977 she published her flickering landscape between lavender covers and named it IOWA—a book that has inspired countless photographers, and that continues to expand the parameters of the medium for viewers all over the world. Not a lover of limelight, Rexroth went on to make other bodies of work, and continued to teach photography at Antioch College and then Wright State University. For the past twenty years she has lived quietly in Cincinnati, Ohio.
