What do you think about prairies? Photographer Ellie Kingsbury wants you to take another look at the prairies of the Midwest which she says are often dismissed as featureless. Kingsbury believes prairies are beautiful with their expanses of native grasses and ever-changing skies.  

“Land and sky exalt the vastness of space,” Artist Ellie Kingsbury said. “They lean together to create a shared horizon.”
