Leland Payton has lived in Missouri all his life and his photographs show Missouri as a lived-in place. Old buildings, old men, and faded pieced quilts airing in the backyard he believes are as worthy of representation as Ozark creeks in the spring or native prairies at dawn. All the photographs were taken with a square format camera. His wild rivers are framed as straightforwardly as the St. Louis street scenes. Payton doesn’t play favorites. A page away from rich Kansas Citians contemplating high art are State Fair goers contemplating carnival art. The center state is a confluence of ecology and culture of the north, south, east and west. He depicts places and faces imprinted by these natural and historic forces. Missouri-ness has rarely been so intimately and credibly captured.

Leland Payton admits the region where the Osage Plains and the Ozark uplift merge is topographically subtle. Still, he found eye-catching relic native prairies and a striking if melancholy architectural record of its American occupation. Driving the lonely farm-to-market roads he concluded “dawn is kind to bland scenery and old farmhouses.” As he organized his shots from these sojourns into western Missouri he realized they were not unlike drawings he did in high school when he borrowed the family Studebaker to explore the prairie border landscape that lay just south of Sedalia.

  3. […] In this press photo of December 30, 1943, Louis H. Egan is not “having the finest time in the world,” as the 1925 profile was titled. With wife Fannie grasping his left arm and deputy U. S. Marshal Davidson holding his right, the tall, disgraced executive clutches a cigarette with a gloved hand. We tell the story of Egan’s glaring error in management that led to his downfall in Damming the Osage: The Conflicted Story of Lake of the Ozark and Truman Reservoir: […]
