FORGOTTONIA is a book about the cycle of life in rural far west central Illinois. It is a story book about those that live, love, and die in this land that has received little support over many decades. Six years ago I returned to my childhood home of Bowen, IL and have been documenting this forgotten land, its inhabitants and activities ever since. This book is a collection from that large body of work.
