"Homeplace" by Sarah Christianson; Daylight Books, 2013, 108 pages.

Sarah Christianson, a native of Cummings, N.D., has recently released a book of photographs of her family farm titled "Homeplace." Her great-great-grandfather emigrated from Norway in 1869 and her parents are the fourth and last consecutive generation to work this land, as Christianson and her siblings have chosen other careers. "Homeplace" aims to not only document the decline of the family farm, but to also celebrate a resilient independent tradition.

Christianson now lives in San Francisco, and has photographs in institutions throughout the Midwest. She recently won the 2013 Individual Artist Commission Grant from the San Francisco Arts Commission for her latest project "When the Landscape is Quiet Again," which documents the oil boom in western North Dakota.

"Homeplace" is available for $28.75 at Amazon.com.
