“The Lincoln Highway” by Photographer William Mark Sommer

A selection of photos from “The Lincoln Highway” by photographer William Mark Sommer, exploring a place he returned to after years of being away. Sommer writes, “Coming home, I felt disconnected in place and people; this seen in the gradual moving on of people and the gentrification of rurality that had taken place in my absence. Through these feelings I went in search of what remained, what once was, and what has become home. In following the Lincoln Highway as my guiding line, I was able to return to the people and places that helped develop my concept of home, these reconnections imbued my soul with a new more profound connection to my recollections of the past and helped me develop a current understanding of the world as it currently stood.”
