The photographs filling Falls reveal the Falls of the Ohio State Park as a landscape where natural history and human history collide. Recent human history and the Ohio River bring blue plastic barrels to this landscape as readily as driftwood. In many ways the Falls of the Ohio is a landscape about time, and looking at two boys carrying an unusually large catch of fish with the railroad bridge overhead, it’s not hard to imagine the many other generations of boys who caught fish here long ago. The photographic interpretation of this place as seen in Falls seems both very otherworldly and very much a Kentuckiana landscape. Includes poem “Your Days are Waiting” by Dave Harrity.
