In researching my topic and looking at different approaches to media use, I’ve been very interested in Kim Stringfellow’s work. Two of her projects are the Jackrabbit Homestead and Greetings from the Salton Sea. Both take a multimedia approach to storytelling, using maps, audio interview, essays and photographs. As someone who is interested in pursuing documentary photography and multimedia storytelling, I think that Stringfellow’s work is really successful. Her material has a life on-line that is meant to be a site of exploration for the viewer, but there is also the opportunity to buy a book of the work as well. Both of the works feature stories of the land and people, but neither just focus on environmental or biological statistics. She takes a more fluid approach to describing place that I find engaging and educational.
