For the last fifteen years, Gregory Halpern has been photographing in Omaha, Nebraska. As a result, steadily compiling a lyrical, if equivocal, response to the American Heartland. Consequently, he produced loosely-collaged spreads that reproduce his construction-paper sketchbooks, Halpern takes pleasure in cognitive dissonance and unexpected harmonies, playing on a sense of simultaneous repulsion and attraction to the place. Omaha Sketchbook is ultimately a meditation on America, on the men and boys who inhabit it, and on the mechanics of aggression, inadequacy, and power.
